Publisher's Summary

After a particularly bad streak of luck in Vegas, Charlie has retreated to Venice, having vowed to give up a life of crime to write crime fiction full-time. But inspiration has yet to strike. And to make matters worse, Charlie's agent, Victoria, shows up at his door just as his prized first edition of The Maltese Falcon flies out the window with a femme-fatale burglar. Blackmailed into committing a dastardly crime in order to get his book back, Charlie is catapulted into yet another adventure, this one even more explosive than the last.

A joy to the ears!

Simon Vance is one of the best narrators I have ever heard; and he IS Charlie. Each and every one of Chris Ewan's books has been intelligent, humorous, a good mystery, and a delightful romp. My only disappointment is that they are all so short! However, I will gladly spend a credit on whatever he writes. Few mystery writers can captivate in so many ways--he does it all.
