The Lioness Is the Hunter

Book 25, The Amos Walker Mysteries - An Amos Walker Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A hot new Amos Walker mystery by a master of the hard-boiled detective novel. "Loren Estleman is my hero."—Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author

Detroit entrepreneur Carl Fannon hires Walker to trace Emil Haas, his partner, whose sudden disappearance has jeopardized their firm’s plans to purchase the historic Sentinel Building. Almost immediately, the missing man shows up and asks the detective to meet him in the empty Sentinel to discuss a top-secret concern. Walker complies, only to find not Haas, but Fannon’s suffocated corpse locked in a basement vault.

When Gwendolyn Haas, the partner’s adult daughter, enters the picture, the client number rises to three, including one missing and one murdered. But the worst is yet to come: Emil Haas’s “concern” is that Fannon’s been buying up depressed real estate on behalf of Charlotte Sing, the international fugitive Walker knows only too well as Madam Sing. Madam Sing is believed to have been executed in Asia for capital crimes without number, but instead may be engaged in rebuilding her fortune to relaunch her assault on civilization.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 19, 2016 – The odds of three clients showing up at Amos Walker's bare-bones office on the very same hot summer day are slim, but that's what happens in Edgar-finalist Estleman's highly entertaining 26th mystery featuring the Detroit-based private eye (after 2015's The Sundown Speech). The first client wants Emil Haas, a prominent businessman and property developer, found; the second definitely wants Hass to remain out of circulation; and the third to arrive, Haas's grown daughter, Gwendolyn, also wants to know what has happened to dear old dad. Before the sun has set, Walker has stumbled on the body of one of his clients and stirred up the interest of the Detroit police, Homeland Security, and a band of international fanatics. But it's all in a day's work for Walker, whose lively first-person narrative is studded with wry observations and refreshingly imaginative turns of phrase. Only the arch villainess, Madame Sing (whose criminal activities include terrorism, murder, drugs, and extortion), strikes a wrong note.
