This guy's not so much a cynic sometimes as an uncompromising crank -- the Oscar the Grouch of private eyes. And the real kicker is that he's not even forty! Sometimes you just wanna shout "Lighten up, Amos!
But crank or not, these books pack a hell of a wallop. Estleman knows his stuff, and the nasty side of Motor City comes alive as Walker straps on his gun and heads out on those mean streets he knows and loves to hate so well. And, despite his bitterness, Walker's an interesting piece of work.

Not that he's any less bound by his own set of rules; he just doesn't like to talk about it. Walker's creator, Loren D. Estleman, makes no bones about it -- he's not writing about reality; he's in "the hero business. Estleman's considered by many to be one of the best contemporary private eye writers around, and he's been nominated and won several Shamuses over the years.
In fact, as of , he's the most Shamus-nominated writer of them all. He's also responsible for the adventures of sleazeball P. Ralph Poteet , as well as a series that traces Detroit crime from the thirties to the present. And lately, he's been tinkering with a new series of short stories featuring Valentino , a film detective who tspecializes in tracking down rare films for UCLA's Film Preservation Department. Estleman also writes westerns and has won the Western Writers of America 's Spur Award a couple of times. And he's been nominated for more Shamuses than you can shake a stick at.
Another part of the charm of the Walker mysteries is his keen sense of place. It turns out Estleman knows even more about Detroit than Walker does, as evidenced in his ambitious, sprawling series, originally optimistcally called the Detroit Trilogy, which is now numbered at seven books. In these books, Estleman attempts nothing less than the entire history of modern Detroit, from the Prohibition-era building of organized crime right up to the present.
As always, like Walker himself, Estleman doesn't really offer anything fancy or trendy, but he gets the job done. Straight From the Author's Mouth. Report respectfully submitted by Kevin Burton Smith.
