From back cover: He's a private eye. He's sexy. He's outrageous.
Meet Silky Pincus: He's an ex-cop, a lover, a maven on everything from karate to knishes. Plus, he's got chutzpah as big as the Bronx. Silky is blessed with a roguish Irish partner (their agency is called Watson and Holmes), a shleppy nephew, and a peculiar dog named Mr. Goldberg. Now he's got his hands full with Kimberley Marsh - very beautiful, very rich, very scared - who believes, on the basis of very compelling evidence, that somebody wants her dead. From the elite East Side to the washed-out West Side to an explosive showdown at Lincoln Center, Silky and Kim dodge China-town cheaters and cocaine killers and fall in love along the way.
