Frank Sinatra in a Blender
Nick Valentine has problems. He’s a drunken ex-cop who livesin his shabby office, hangs out at strip clubs, and has only one realfriend—Frank Sinatra. But he’s one of the best private investigators in Saint Louis. So when an inept crew robs a credit union, only Valentine can figure outwho made off with the millions—because sometimes solving a crime takes a hardguy who’s not afraid to work outside the law. Valentine swerves through the underbellyof Saint Louis looking for answers, and with every law he breaks, every drink hetakes, and every OxyContin he snorts, he lurches closer to finding the truth—orfloating facedown in the Missouri River.
Brutally funny and wild, this no-holds-barred crimenovel reads like Elmore Leonard on meth: crazy and addictive—you’ll want more.
