Toby Peters tries to protect a Western star against a vicious salami-mogul. Toby Peters is enjoying a moonlighting gig as the house detective at a hot-sheets motel when two giant men come to take him for a ride. They+re Chicago toughs, visiting Los Angeles with their boss, Lombardi, who has come west to establish himself as the cold-cuts king of California. His message to Peters is simple: Stop asking questions and tell Cooper he didn+t find anything. Or else. "Cooper- is Gary Cooper, who recently hired a detective named Toby Peters to quiet a blackmailer. But that wasn+t Toby - it was the dentist who shares his office. The amateur sleuth bungled the case so badly that now they+re all in danger from Lombardi, the blackmailers, and anyone else with a hot head and a .45. If Toby Peters can+t sort this out quickly, the next batch of Lombardi hot dogs will be made of one hundred percent pure-ground detective. About the Author. Stuart M. Kaminsky (1934-2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. Born in Chicago, he spent his youth immersed in pulp fiction and classic cinema - two forms of popular entertainment which he would make his life+s work. After college and a stint in the army, Kaminsky wrote film criticism and biographies of the great actors and directors of Hollywood+s Golden Age. In 1977, when a planned biography of Charlton Heston fell through, Kaminsky wrote Bullet for a Star, his first Toby Peters novel, beginning a fiction career that would last the rest of his life. Kaminsky penned twenty-four novels starring the detective, whom he described as "the anti-Philip Marlowe.- In 1981+s Death of a Dissident, Kaminsky debuted Moscow police detective Porfiry Rostnikov, whose stories were praised for their accurate depiction of Soviet life. His other two series starred Abe Lieberman, a hardened Chicago cop, and Lew Fonseca, a process server. In all, Kaminsky wrote more than sixty novels. He died in St. Louis in 2009. Review quote. "Impressive. . . . Kaminsky has staked a claim to a piece of the Russian turf. . . . He captures the Russian scene and characters in rich detail.- - The Washington Post Book World. "Quite simply the best cop to come out of the Soviet Union since Martin Cruz Smith+s Arkady Renko in Gorky Park.- - The San Francisco Examiner. "Stuart Kaminsky+s Rostnikov novels are among the best mysteries being written.- - The San Diego Union-Tribune. "For anyone with a taste for old Hollywood B-movie mysteries, Edgar winner Kaminsky offers plenty of nostalgic fun . . . The tone is light, the pace brisk, the tongue firmly in cheek.- - Publishers Weekly. "Marvelously entertaining.- - Newsday. "Makes the totally wacky possible . . . Peters [is] an unblemished delight.- - Washington Post. "The Ed McBain of Mother Russia.- - Kirkus Reviews.
