I had to wait for my husband at the library. I didn't have a book to read with me so went to A in the mystery section. And this is the gem I found. A private detective is asked to help out Lefty who was found in a house with a dead judge. Lefty was a burglar not a murder. The tentacles went in many different directions involving a phony kidnapping and other illegal events. I kept turning the pages with enjoyment and the ending was so satisfying. I highly recommend this book.
