Published in celebration of Dylan Thomas' 100th birthday. New York, 1953. A private investigator takes on a tail job for Time Magazine. His quarry is a poet, newly arrived from the UK, who is suing the magazine for libel. The private eye has never heard of him, but he will soon. The mark is the Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas. And in three weeks time, Mr. Thomas will be dead. Based on true events The Poet & the Private Eye is a beautifully written work of historical fiction lamenting the sad end of a brilliant poet.
