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 home country she's wanted for a murder she didn't commit, and she needs Walker to find a missing woman--the woman whose name she's using, whom she's been paying monthly so she can stay in the U.S.

But when the real Gilia Cristobal turns up dead, what was merely an odd case becomes downright nasty. His pretty young 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 seats. Loren D. Estleman's never been better!

Book Excerpts

The last line of security was a big Basque built like a coke oven. He wore a familiar face behind picador sideburns and a dozen-odd rivets in his eyebrows, nose, and the deep dimple above his lip. In another Detroit, under a different administration, he’d specialized in kneecapping Republicans. When the market went soft in ‘94, he’d scored work in show business, playing a succession of plumbers, janitors, and building superintendents in Spanish-language soap operas. I couldn’t approach him without glancing down at his chest for a subtitle.
