Gen. Douglas MacArthur enlists the help of a discreet private detective in "one of the sprightliest of the [Toby Peters] series" (Time). It's September 1942, and Gen. Douglas MacArthur believes he's got what it takes to win the war in the Pacific-but he's got a personal problem to take care of first. An aide has run off with his war chest, his donor list, and a handful of embarrassing private letters: a haul that would make the general a perfect target for blackmail and derail the post-war presidential run he's planning. This is one battle he can't afford to lose. So the general enlists Det. Toby Peters, who has built a reputation for discretion among Hollywood's elite, not to mention the White House. Forming a surprising alliance with former Pinkerton agent and legendary crime novelist, Dashiell Hammett, Peters follows the trail to Angel Springs, California, and a mysterious millionaire who's definitely no angel. In protecting the general from blackmail, Peters hopes to avoid paying the ultimate price himself. Edgar Award winner Stuart M. Kaminsky "has a delightfully original mind enriching-rather than just borrowing from-an old literary form" (Los Angeles Times).
