In a strange book in which no one dies until a past lie has started being investigated, Estleman's detective, Amos Walker, manages to dig up a lot of truth about long buried dirt, but it is too late to benefit the couple who lived without love that could have brought them happiness. It is full of twists and turns to keep the reader on his toes, keeps suspense high, and finds truth more far reacing that the original mystery quests for. This is another amazing story of how far people will go because of greed. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0892966637, Hardcover)

"Stuart Lund came in at six-two and three hundred pounds in gray silk tailoring with a large head of wavy yellow hair, blue eyes like wax drippings, and a black chevron-shaped moustache he hadn't bothered to bleach." That description of a lawyer who summons private detective Amos Walker to a secret meeting with Jay Bell Furlong, a world-famous architect who is supposedly dying in Los Angeles, could have come straight from Raymond Chandler. So could characters with names like Royce Grayling and Lynn Arsenault. That's why Chandler fans should rejoice that Loren D. Estleman's Walker--who first appeared in 1997's Never Street--returns in grand style in The Witchfinder. Walking the wickedly hot streets of a Detroit described as vividly and lovingly as Chandler's Los Angeles, Walker searches for the nasty parties who faked a photo that shows Furlong's much younger lady friend in bed with another man, thereby scuttling the architect's last chance for romance. Walker takes a bullet to the head, sneaks out of the hospital too early, and generally behaves as though he hasn't heard that this classic branch of the mystery tree has been declared dead by so-called experts. Other Estleman outings in paperback include Red Highway, Stamping Ground, and Stress.
