Indianapolis's least employed PI heads downstate in search of a missing woman in this mystery from the "funny and brilliant" Shamus Award-winning author (The Wall Street Journal). Facing insolvency and imminent eviction, private detective Albert Samson finally catches a break. Elizabeth Staedtler hires him to find her missing friend, Priscilla. But is Priscilla really missing or has she simply run away from her husband? Conducting an investigation in an unfamiliar city of Southern Indiana, Samson lands a stint in lockup, two murderers on his tail, and threats of a violent end that make the dispossessed detective consider hanging up his gumshoes for good. Another humorous installment in the beloved Albert Samson mysteries, this crime novel follows the smart-mouthed midwestern detective into bizarre territory. Missing Woman is the 5th book in the Albert Samson Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
