Don't Ever Get Old
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: August 2012
Duration: 8 hours 4 minutes
This is the first in a one-of-a-kind, spectacularly well-written mystery series featuring Buck Schatz, an eighty-seven-year-old retired Memphis cop with a know-it-all, plugged-in grandson as his sidekick.
When Buck learns that an old adversary may have escaped Germany with a fortune in stolen gold, he decides to hunt down the fugitive and claim the loot. But lots of people want a piece of the stolen treasure, and Buck's investigation quickly attracts unfriendly attention from a Mississippi loan shark, a seven-foot-tall Hasidic Jew, and a bloodthirsty maniac hell-bent on rubbing out everybody who knows anything about the stolen gold.
Readers who love Elmore Leonard, Walter Mosley, early Jonathan Lethem, and superlative detective fiction in general will not want to miss Don't Ever Get Old.
"Once you start reading this wonderfully original and totally engrossing story, you'll do what I did: keep reading...When I'm eighty-seven, I want to be Buck Schatz."-Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author
