Description
In this third outing for Richard Yancey's hilarious PI Teddy Ruzak, following The Highly Effective Detective Goes to the Dogs, Ruzak's latest client is a good-looking dame with long blond hair and great gams. Her husband, she suspects, is stepping out on her, and she hires Teddy to nail the cheater. Then Teddy tips his hand to the husband, and the client disappears. Is this a divorce case—or a murder?

"Teddy Ruzak, the Tennessee private investigator—well, he would be one, if he could pass the exam—returns to solve another crime. Problem is, for a while he's not sure if a crime has been committed.... Like Gregory Mcdonald's Fletch novels, the Ruzak mysteries rely heavily on dialogue.... Teddy himself is a wonderful creation, a hapless PI wannabe who doesn't seem to have a clue as to how the professionals do it. You can't help liking the guy, as much for his sheer bumbling ineptitude as for his shoot-from-the-hip way of saying what's on his mind."—Booklist (starred review)
