From Back Cover:


Distinguished, retired Judge Lowell Amerine is the last person P.I. Gill Disbro expected would have a scandal buried in his backyard. But thanks to his good-for-nothing nephew Barry, the elderly jurist has been paying a couple of thousand a month in blackmail to save Barry's neck... and his own. But when a second blackmailer gets in on the act, the judge searches out Gil Disbro.

Disbro's investigation takes him on a tour of the seamy side of town, where he uncovers a cunning little scam with big-time players. And while Gil's dodging both bullets and the police, he's also juggling a Mafia don, a growing body count, a beautiful young woman with a secret, and a list of suspects that begins with Barry, his ex-stripper girl friend, and more money-hungry lowlifes than the honorable judge had encountered in a lifetime on the bench.

"Disbro is the perfect hero fo the 90's" - Teri White, author of Max Trueblood and the Jersey Desperado

"Mystery lovers, be on the lookout for Mr. Martin!" - Gerald Petievich, author of To Live and Die in L.A.
