Description
The unlikeliest private eye in New York City, Stanley Hastings doesn't even carry a gun. Still reeling from his previous misadventure as a bodyguard for a hitman, of all things, Stanley is glad to take a damsel-in-distress case. But the fair maiden turns out to be a married mom who wants him to find out why her teenage daughter is skipping school. Playing truant officer, Stanley first finds himself charged with kidnapping, then gets framed for murder when a congressman involved with the girl is found dead.

"No good deed goes unpunished in Stanley's world. The latest Hastings mystery is typical of the series: charming, funny, and cleverly plotted. Stanley is the living embodiment of the old Rodney Dangerfield punch line: 'I don't get no respect.' His boss thinks he's a goof, his wife disregards him, and his NYPD connection addresses him as 'moron.' Readers just root for him. Engaging reading."Booklist
