Indianapolis PI Albert Samson picks up three cases that land him on the city's most wanted list in this mystery from the Shamus Award-winning author. Albert Samson, Indy's least successful PI, is working three cases at once: an ecoterrorist group threatens to bomb the city, an obnoxious poet wants help murdering his wife, and a dazzling socialite's mysterious package needs a courier. The ecoterrorism group, the Scum Front, arrive at his door in animal masks after misplacing a bomb. Thankfully, they have only blown up fallow cornfields so far, but Samson must track down the missing bomb before it detonates in the city. Meanwhile, he discovers that the poet is not, in fact, married. And he wonders why a beautiful member of the Indianapolis elite would hire him as a delivery boy. As the three seemingly unrelated cases collide, time is running out for Samson to find the missing explosives, nail the culprit, and get out alive. Constantly attracting bizarre clients, the smart-mouthed midwestern detective "is always good, wry company" in the critically acclaimed Albert Samson Mystery (Kirkus Reviews). Called by a Panther is the 7th book in the Albert Samson Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
