Description
Called back by his old boss at International Surety, investigator Hobart Lindsey agrees to take one last case, in this eighth novel in the series: the widow of a murdered mystery writer in Berkeley, California, has filed a plagiarism suit after a thinly disguised version of her late husband's last, unfinished novel appears in print under another author's name. Racing against Marvia Plum of the Berkeley police force, Lindsey tracks down the dead man's stolen computer, believing it will uncover the plagiarism, while Plum hopes it will lead her to the writer's killer, in a case that also involves a young street punk and an even younger runaway girl.

"[Richard] Lupoff alternates Lindsey's investigation, as he teams up with old flame Marvia Plum of the Berkeley police, with the nasty, sordid tale of teenage runaway Rebi (Little Red) and her abusive boyfriend. The book combines a tough private-eye murder tale (with an insurance agent standing in for the PI), a solid police-procedural story, and a touch of the caper novel. This is the eighth and final book in the series featuring Lindsey and Plum and provides series fans with a satisfying ending. There's enough background in the book for newcomers to thoroughly enjoy the novel as a stand-alone."Booklist
