The popular mystery from New York Times bestselling author Don Winslow—now available as an ebook
Book five of the Neal Carey mystery series: Babysitting an eighty-year-old comedian who acts like an eight-year-old is trying enough, but when the bullets start flying, PI Neal Carey wonders if maybe it’s time to explore new career opportunities
In the final entry of Don Winslow’s Neal Carey series, the PI must escort Natty Silver, an ancient legend of the Borscht Belt comedy circuit, from Las Vegas to Palm Springs. Once again a seemingly easy job turns deadly complicated. When Silver isn’t busy stealing Carey’s car and making off on his own, he’s telling hilarious stories from the golden age of the stage. Silver has quite a past, and riding shotgun with the comedian makes for a road trip that just wont end: Extortionists, old flames, and actual arsonists are all out to burn the old man, with Carey caught in the middle. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Don Winslow, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
“A thoroughly enjoyable comic mystery.” —Booklist “[Winslow] has a way with crisp dialogue, and the laughs keep coming.” —Publishers Weekly
Don Winslow (b. 1953) is the New York Times bestselling author of thirteen crime and mystery novels as well as short stories and film screenplays. A Cool Breeze on the Underground, Winslow’s debut and the first novel in his popular Neal Carey series, was nominated for an Edgar Award. Before becoming a fulltime writer, Winslow worked as a private detective in New York and California. He currently lives outside San Diego with his wife.
I think this is the weakest Neal Carey novel. I'd say the series went 2 for 4 overall with the first and third being excellent.
