Wonderful old-school hard boiled wise-guy detective fiction. This is the seventh book in this series and was written in 1987. The series started in 1980 and is up to around 25 installments. The author is apparently not done yet and is still pounding new installments out on a manual typewriter; I plan to read them all, eventually. I thought that this was the best in the series so far and I'm giving it a 5, great stuff for those who like this genre.

LADY YESTERDAY by Loren D. Estleman

Estleman is at his hardboiled best with this one. The dialogue between Amos Walker and the young Mafia boss is classic noir. A great addition to the series, where Amos helps his old flame, ex-hooker Iris Dexter locate her long lost father. Along the way, you’ll learn lots about the Detroit jazz business of the 1950s. 4 stars.
Detective Amos Walker is hired to find the trombonist father of a black, beautiful reformed hooker. This leads him through Detroit's smoky music clubs where the past is packed with secrets. There's a nice twist at the end that I didn't see coming.
Great fun for a Detroit girl: familiar locale; classic noir tone; and a likeable, three-dimensional private eye. I would definitely look for more books by Loren Estleman.
Reading these Amos Walker books is like eating peanuts--once you get started you can't stop. Even though you're not crazy about peanuts.
