A faded film star asks Detroit PI Amos Walker to get her out of a relationship with a deadly mobster When Amos Walker was a teen, he had a poster of Gail Hope on his wall. A 60s bombshell in the beach-blanket tradition, she has fallen hard since her glory days as one of the dying studio system's final starlets. But when she calls on Amos Walker she remains as lovely as ever: an elegant beauty with a $750,000 problem. Since her career evaporated, she has played the part of moll to one of Detroit's big-name gangsters, a powerful man stalked by death. Tired of a life looking over her shoulder, Hope pawns everything she owns in an attempt to buy her way out. She entrusts Walker with a suitcase heavy with cash, and asks him to play delivery boy--a simple assignment that doesn't take long to turn deadly. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author's personal collection.

A rogue government agent steals his organization's list of field agents before quitting to supposedly finance his retirement. An inept rookie private eye is poisoned by drinking water from a water cooler laced with potassium cyanide. Hardboiled private eye Amos Walker is dragged into this convoluted plot by his ex-wife. IMHO, I would rate "Sweet Women Lie" at only 3.50 stars due to the unsatisfactory plot.

The violence fits the City of Detroit. But I still think that the Amos Walker hardboiled private eye series would have been more successful if it were set in San Francisco, Los Angeles or Miami.
