Desoto sends a retired cop to Carver. The old cop has a feeling that there is something going on in his neighborhood, but the local cop won't take him seriously. On his way home from talking to Carver, he's hit by a car and it's called an accidental "hit & run", but Fred doesn't believe in coincidence.
Mark Hepler
In this book, Lutz employs a clean, crisp writing style that is full of—but not overloaded with—detail and description that add to the novel’s sense of place. His character, Carver, has a lone-wolf warrior persona that reminds one of Robert Crais’ Joe Pike, or Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, but, of course, predates them.
And, because Carver is crippled in one leg and struggles physically, he is no Pike or Reacher . . . he’s more like Charles Willeford’s Hoke Mosely.
I enjoyed the book, and finished it
Perhaps I'll read more by this author when I can't find anything else.
