Indianapolis PI Albert Samson must prove the innocence of an unstable veteran accused of murder in this excellent mystery (The New Republic). Martha Jerome chose struggling private eye Albert Samson because he’s the cheapest detective in Indianapolis
As mysteries go, The Way We Die Now isn’t all that mysterious. Most readers will be able to figure out what’s going on before the halfway point in the book. But knowing and proving are two different things, as Samson finds out, and he has to try to gather enough evidence to get his client out of jail. The way that Sampson tries to do this involves wearing the 1970’s version of a wire and literally hanging around outside a window in one of the bad guys’ home in the hopes that the villains will say something to incriminate themselves. Michael Zinn Lewin is an American writer of mystery fiction perhaps best known for his series about Albert Samson, a distinctly low-keyed, non-hardboiled private detective who plies his trade in Indianapolis, Indiana. Lewin himself grew up in Indianapolis, but after graduating from Harvard and living for a few years in New York City, has lived in England for the last 40 years.
Select Format: Hardcover. It wasn't bad enough that a ten-year-old kid had beaten him at basketball in the morning. Next Albert Samson was being badgered by a humourless prospective client. Was he, in fact, the cheapest private detective in Indianapolis? Did his daily rate include expenses or did he try to claim those on top? Expenses were indeed extra, but Samson was still a bargain and he got the case. The client's son-in-law had been charged with murder.
Michael Lewin has just about the best private detective who has been around in many a da. Lewin has brains and style. Lewin is a witty and concerned writer, singing his song of social significant low-key. With a complexity worthy of Ross Macdonald and the same concern for family and secret relationships, Lewin (The Way We Die Now) has crafted a first-rate book combining grit, humor and tough-minded caring. One hopes for more mysteries featuring sarcastic, abrasive, all too human and ultimately endearing Leroy Powder.
