He knew he was going to die...So he hired a P.I. to find his killer! An Edgar and Shamus Award-winning series returns! The last thing Harry James Denton needs on one of the hardest days of his life is a stranger walking into his office and imploring him to investigate a murder. Especially a murder that hasn't even happened yet! But that's exactly what Leo Walsh--a once-wealthy, famous writer who's fallen on hard times--wants Harry to do. When Leo explains that he's the intended victim, Harry blows him off. He doesn't have time for this craziness. After all, he's just learned that the terminally ill mother of his teenaged daughter has passed away. Now he has to fly to Reno, Nevada for the funeral and to arrange for his daughter, Alexis, to return with him to Nashville. He also has to get his head around the fact that he's becoming a single father in his late-fifties to a daughter he barely knows. But Harry's already messy, complicated life is complicated even further when Leo Walsh's prediction turns out to be true. Overwhelmed by guilt that he didn't believe Walsh's outlandish story, Harry starts digging into a brutal murder. Edgar and Shamus Award-winning author Steven Womack brings the original MUSIC CITY MURDERS Nashville PI series back after nearly two decades. Harry--and his creator Steven Womack--will steal the hearts of readers who like their sleuths witty, self-effacing, and slightly Columbo-esque. You'll love Womack's writing. Readers have compared him to John D. MacDonald, only with a big meat n' three side dish of smart-ass on steroids. "Womack is right up there with Parker, Jance, and Grafton. He writes a fast-moving, well-plotted detective story. I highly recommend all of the Denton series. I've read every one, and haven't been disappointed yet." --Joan Benny, Amazon Reviewer
