A gripping new novel in the three-time Shamus Award-winning Amos Walker series.

The New York Times calls Amos Walker a "streetwise indestructible tiger with an ethical code that keeps him with the good guys." In a sharp new thriller, Detroit's most savvy private eye is up to his neck in international drug-smuggling, hit squads, double-identities, music-
industry gangsters, and a client who's nothing but trouble.

Gilia Cristobal is a flashy Latina singer with a complicated past. Her name isn't really Gilia. In her country she's wanted for a murder she didn't commit, and she needs Walker to find a missing woman whose name she's using, whom she's been paying monthly so she can stay in the U.S.

But when the decomposing body of the real Gilia Cristobal is found next door to her mother's house, what was merely an odd case becomes downright nasty. And when an undercover death squad from the singer's home country is spotted, the Feds think they're planning an assassination. But Walker isn't so sure. His client is involved in a lot more than just music, and all of it's deadly.

Poison Blonde is an enormously entertaining, fast-paced novel that will keep readers on the edge of their seat. Estleman has never been better!
