Description
Chicago Private Eye Joe Kozmarski is tired of blood and bullets. So when Judge Rifkin, a man who double-crossed Joe's father, asks him to spend a day fishing, he reluctantly agrees. He is curious to see what the judge wants of him and it's safe to say he's not very interested in fishing.The Judge has more than trout and a twelve pack on his mind. The police suspect the Judge's assistant Bob Piedras of killing his lover, a Vietamese beauty with a taste for hard liquor, drugs, and stripping in front of a camera. Soon Koz Marski is hunting for the real killer with the unwanted help of the woman's two thuggish brothers and his own eleven-year-old nephew. Then the Judge is murdered; and Bob Piedras disappears. Joe should know better than to expect a day off. The latest winner in the esteemed Best First Private Eye Novel Contest, The Last Striptease twists and turns in all the right ways.

display_description In his impressive and confident debut, Michael Wiley delivers a thrilling tale about how greed and revenge play out on the streets of Chicago. Private eye Joe Kozmarski has just been asked to clear his childhood friend Bob Piedras of murder. Bob's latest girlfriend, a young Vietnamese American beauty, has turned up dead in an airport hotel. No one is very surprised; she had a taste for hard liquor, drugs, and stripping in front of a camera. And Bob has a history of violence. But Bob's boss, retired judge Peter Rifkin, is convinced Bob is innocent and thinks Joe is the one to find the real killer. But Joe's life is complicated. He hasn't spoken to Rifkin for fifteen years-ever since his father, now dead, found out that the judge had double-crossed him. The dead woman's brothers, a pair of tough guys, are bent on being the first to find and punish her murderer. On top of that, Joe and his wife have separated, and his mother has dropped his eleven-year-old nephew on him. But the more obstacles Joe encounters, the more determined he becomes to see this case through. With its vividly realized characters and page-turning story line, The Last Striptease won the 2006 St. Martin's Press / Private Eye Writers of America contest, which has accomplished its mission of finding amazing new talent in what has become a long tradition of excellent crime fiction.
