The Sundown Speech
Publisher: Brilliance Audio
Date: November 2015
Duration: 6 hours 22 minutes
Amos Walker is hired by Heloise and Dante Gunnar, a bohemian Ann Arbor couple, to find Jerry Marcus, a film director who disappeared with their investment money. It's one of Walker's easiest jobs: a few hours later, Walker locates Marcus-his body shoved into a bedroom cupboard, a bullet through his head.
An open and shut case...but Walker can't quite let it go. When Dante Gunnar is arrested for the murder, Walker finds himself again in Heloise's employ, this time trying to prove her husband's innocence.
When Walker interviews Holly Zacharias, a college student who was the last person to see Marcus alive, things get interesting. Because if Dante's in jail for killing Marcus, then who is driving past in the Crown Vic, shooting at Walker and Holly?
Walker knows that Marcus is dead: he discovered the body himself. But what if Walker was set up, and the murder victim in the cupboard was someone else? Jerry Marcus might still be alive...and planning something more lethal than anything even Walker can imagine.
The Sundown Speech is a hot new Amos Walker mystery by Loren D. Estleman, the master of the hard-boiled detective novel as well as the winner of four Shamus Awards and the Private Eye Writers of America Lifetime Achievement Award.
