Description-
  • When a client dies in a car explosion, Orlando detective Fred Carver learns the man may not have been who he said he was

    For Bert Renway, it starts out as a simple proposition: a fat bundle of money to spend a few weeks impersonating Frank Wesley, a local tycoon. But after a while Bert grows suspicious of the easy money, and seeks help in the shape of Fred Carver, an ex–Orlando policeman turned private investigator. Like Bert, Carver smells trouble, and agrees to help him find out who his employers are and why they want him to play Wesley.

    Neither of them is suspicious enough. A few minutes after Bert leaves, an explosion sounds in the parking lot—the new client's car gone up in a burst of flame. When they pull his body from the wreckage, dental records identify him not as Bert Renway, but as Frank Wesley. Carver doesn't care. He's on the case no matter who the man was.

    This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Lutz including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
