With his usual knife-sharp prose in cutting form, Loren D. Estleman proves that he can carve a short story as cleanly as the full-length Amos Walker detective novels. Detroit's favorite private investigator, Amos Walker, barrels through this collection of five short stories by Shamus Award winner, Loren D. Estleman. General Murders upholds Estleman's reputation as a master of the short story. Both card-carrying fans of Amos Walker and those who are new to the series will devour these stories as they, with Walker, expose crime in some of the most corrupt alleys and steamy streets of Detroit. In this collection are five vintage Walker stories: "Greektown," "Robbers' Roost," "Fast Burn," "Dead Soldier," and "Eight-Mile and Dequindre." In five stories that typify the best of the private-eye fiction genre, you will experience big-city corruption and scandal along with hard-edged, wise-cracking PI Amos Walker, whom critics place "at or near the top of the list of hard-boiled private eyes" (Publishers Weekly).

"Robert Forster's low, gravelly voice is the perfect accompaniment for Estleman's five hard-boiled detective stories. PI Amos Walker pursues corruption and crime in Detroit. Forster is particularly good in his portrayal of the wise-cracking, streetwise detective. He also moves easily from one character to another and quickly engages listeners in his smooth performance. Forster's flat, gritty style perfectly suits the plots of these quick-paced, ruthless, and utterly entrancing stories. Forster's voice reflects the building suspense in some stories and the simple logic used to solve crimes in others. This well-performed presentation will please Estleman fans as well as those who simply enjoy murder mysteries. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
