"I never thought I'd see her again. But never is longer than forever." She is book editor, Louise Starr, a beautiful and scheming ghost from Amos Walker's past; and she wants the Detroit private eye to find Eugene Booth, a missing paperback writer from the 1950s and ask him why he turned down his first book contract in 40 years. Eugene Booth's trail leads to a rustic motel cabin, where the crusty old pro is hammering out his first novel in decades on a battered Smith Corona with a case of bourbon for inspiration. But when the writer winds up hanging from his own belt, Walker must discover the connection between the apparent suicide, the murder of Booth's wife 40 years before - and a deadly secret as old as World War II.

"Amos Walker, hard-boiled Detroit private eye, is back. This time he's on the trail of Eugene Booth, a pulp writer of the '50s. Walker finds him, but when Booth winds up dead, Walker must find the connection between his apparent suicide and the murder of Booth's wife 40 years before. John Kenneth's voice is strikingly similar to the voice of Stacy Keech, which makes it well suited for the edgy and cynical Walker. But Kenneth shines in the role of Eugene Booth, capturing the gravelly voice of the whiskey-drinking, chain-smoking paperback writer. P.B.J. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
