"General Murders" is a collection of ten Amos Walker short stories that are done every bit as well as any of the Detroit P.I.'s best novels. Author Loren Estleman proves himself to every bit as effective working in the short form as he is with his novels. As the title implies, the stories mostly deal with death and murder, but they all come with a twist, most of them unforseemn and satisfying. Walker is the most Phillip Marlowe-like P.I. walking the means streets today. Any P.I. fan owes it to themselves to make his acquaintence. At at brief 230 pages, this book is a quick delight.
