A pretty good detective story.

This is one of the Clif Hardy, private eye series. One day, Clif is approached by a has-been private eye who wants his help. He has found out that a reward still exists on a 17-year-old case of a woman who was allegedly kidnapped and who had permanently disappeared. The reward which apparently still existed was for a million dollars. Clif agrees to help this other private eye, but two days into the investigation to pin down the reward, the other private eye is murdered. That same day, a woman shows up at Clif’s house and asks him if he’s interested in selling it, which he isn’t. Clif and the woman, Claudia, become lovers, and he continues his investigation. But somehow the bad guys always seem to be a step ahead of Clif. So why is that happening? This is a pretty good book and I’ll look for other books in this series as they become available through commercial audio.
