The Sundown Speech - Loren D. Estleman

Product Description(
Amos Walker is hired by Helen and Dante Gunner, a bohemian Ann Arbor couple, to find Jerry Marcus, a film director who has disappeared with their investment money. It's one of Walker's easiest jobs to date. In just a few short hours, Walker locates Marcus in his bedroom...murdered, his body shoved into a cupboard, a bullet through his head.
This case is opened and shut quickly, but Walker can't quite let it go. When Dante is arrested for the murder Walker finds himself again in Helen's employ, this time trying to prove that Dante didn't do it.
When Walker interviews Holly Zacharias, a college student who was the last person to see Marcus alive, things get interesting. Because if Marcus is dead, and Dante is his killer, then who is driving by in the Crown Vic, shooting at Walker and Holly?
Jerry Marcus just might still be alive, and his plans may be worse than anything Walker can imagine.

MY THOUGHTS: Even though this book 25 of a series, it is still a good stand alone book.  It's also a very short book, 238 pages, so it can be read in one day.  I started it yesterday morning and finished it by evening.  Amos Walker is a private investigator.  Helen and Dante hire Walker to find the guy who swindled them out of 15,000.  But when Walker finds him, he's already dead.  DNA proves it, but Walker sees this "dead" man walking around later.  And so the mystery starts.  How can "dead" guy be walking around town?  DNA doesn't lie.  This leads Walker on a mad dash all over town trying to find out what the heck is going on.  The clues and characters are far and in between for Walker, but he keeps up with the help of a police SGT. that is working the case also.  They bounce ideas off each other and they finally figure it out.  You will never believe the ending!  It surprised the heck out of me.  I give this book 5......

This book is also for 1 of my reading challenges.
