You will enjoy this book a lot more if you are familiar with the Detroit area. I lived in that area for the first thirty years of my life so I qualify in being familiar. This book is filled with street names that I know. Sinister Heights was published in 2002 when Detroit was on the verge of losi...

Sweet! Women lie?Estleman and his Detroit detective Amos Walker is my favorite hard-boiler of all time. He's almost always dead-on laconic, and the settings in dirty and decaying Detroit are perfect for the less-said-the-better writing style that lets Estleman put over a detailed mystery in 180...

Amos Walker is an entertaining character. His dialogue, as a private detective, makes me want to place him somewhere between Mike Hammer and Groucho Marx. He’s a tough guy whose asides are made to entertain himself as well as his audience. In this case he finds that he has been hired by a famo...

To paraphrase author John D. MacDonald (Travis McGee series); Estleman's Amos Walker is "one of the few characters who would be comfortable communing with his Ft. Lauderdale knight in shining armor". High praise indeed from one of the "Masters" of the genre.With the recent demise of most of my fa...

A little bit too much.I have now read two Amos Walker books, this one and a collection of short stories, and I have yet to make up my mind about whether I truely like this character/writer or not.I like the tough streets of Detroit stuff and I think the setting, the industrial decay of the upper ...

There are so many one-liners in this book you could squash a pack mule under their combined weight. The main character, Amos Walker, is a heavyweight prose puncher and a verbal jujitsu master. He says the kind of things you write down on 3 x 5 cards and study before parties. Jab and punch phrases...
