Ex-NYPD cop now P.I. Moe Prager investigates the disappearance of a young woman who worked for an up-and-coming politician. This series takes place in the 1980s and, as usual, Coleman's plot twists and turns enticingly to a grand finale.

Great P.I novel--not what you would expect. A Jewish, wine-shop owning ex-cop finds himself given an offer he "can't" refuse by a local big-wig. Interesting characters and it moves along smoothly.

I really enjoy the Moe Prager series and this is the third book in the series. Moe is a regular guy with regular problems and a real life (I know... too many reals). Moe finds himself pulled into another mystery - this time finding what's happened to a missing girl/woman/daughter. He manages to uncover the truth in his own unique way.

Moe is realistic in that he doesn't beat everyone up all the time and doesn't get into shoot outs in each story (OK, there is one minor gun fight in this book) and he is a real person.

The action is slow paced and his process is more cerebral than blunt physicality... but they are good stories.
