Highly entertaining and a great read ( )

Denial is an excellent novel in Kaminsky’s Lew Fonesca series. A woman hires Lew to find the man who killed her son by hitting him with his car. Another woman in a nursing home hires him to prove that she witnessed a murder in the nursing home. He solves both cases through plenty of interesting events and conversations with many colorful characters. The addition of Darrell, a thirteen year old angry black boy, who was given a choice to accept Lew as his “big brother” or enter the juvenile justice system, provided some humor. In addition to solving the cases, Ann (Lew’s psychiatrist) helps Lew realize what he needs do to deal with his grief. I have enjoyed all the Lew Fonesca mysteries very much, but this one is the best to date. ( )

Lew Fonesca, living a life of quiet despair, still manages to solve two mysteries -- the hit-and-run death of a teenager and the reported, but possibly imaginary, murder of a nursing home resident. ( )
