Who killed Tom Sattler? Who stole $350 million from New Vision Strategic Investments? It's up to Harry Starke to figure it out.
The call came on a Tuesday evening in the middle of August at around 9:30. It was from an old school friend that Harry Starke hadn't heard from in almost five years, and he hadn't thought about him in almost as long. Tom Sattler wanted to meet with Harry urgently, and it wouldn't wait until morning. When Harry arrived at Sattler's luxury home less than an hour later, he found him dead, lying in a pool of blood, a single gunshot wound to the head, and .22 revolver lying close to his hand.
Suicide? If he was going to do that, why the hell did he call me?
The search for an answer to that question starts Harry on a wide-ranging investigation that involves murder, corruption, organized crime, and deception.

Harry Just Gets Better! Fab Narrator
- bec/audiothing "I review books and audiobooks, mostly mystery, police procedurals, That's about it!"
Money and Murder, the Chicks for Free
Yes, in my opinion, this is Noir in the most positive definition of that genre. Harry Starke is a Hero you can root for. There are eight or more stand alone books in the series. Entertainment value to time investment? Very good.
Though there are recurring characters, the crimes and investigation are different. Harry can be methodical, sometimes impulsive. Doggedly uncovering the murder of a long ago acquaintance, and the theft of a huge amount of money, and how the two are tied together.
Tom Lennon becomes the character. He keeps the story moving. I appreciate that his style is grounded, not gimmicky or over the top. Real to the characters imagined by author and listener.
I had to listen in several time segments, but on the one hand, I savored the audio book by necessity.
This is a favorite series. Thanks for the chance to listen!
This audiobook was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review. Thanks Mr. Lennon!
