Amos Walker Novels

Amos Walker, P.I., is as hard-boiled as they come. Among the streets of Detroit, Michigan, Amos Walker finds plenty of crimes to keep him busy. Divorced and a Vietnam vet, Walker is a loner, at times seeming to live on cigarettes and whiskey. His reputation is well-known, and his name legendary on the street. Old fashioned and sarcastic, Walker uses his own wits, and a lot of plain legwork, to solve cases and get justice for those who can’t get it for themselves.

Estleman delivers sly, humorous first-person narratives of the cunning Private Investigator. With 22 novels in this series—and still more to come—Amos Walker’s adventures are always fresh and exciting: classic noir detective novels at their finest.
