About the Book

An Emerald City Elegy For Ray Neslowe, being a private detective in Seattle isn’t quite the life of excitement people see on TV. He serves legal papers on witnesses and does background checks for clients, but most of his work comes in the form of spying on cheating spouses for his divorce-attorney employer. He shoots with a camera, not a gun. Then one night on a stakeout, all that changes when Neslowe suddenly finds himself on the run—the only problem is, he doesn’t know who’s after him. Desperate to seek refuge, he accidentally stumbles onto a crime scene and is arrested by the police instead. It will take all his skills as an investigator as well as help from every contact he has in town for the detective to keep himself from being convicted of murder. Like the improvisation of a great jazz musician, there’s no road map this time as Ray Neslowe is forced to work his way through the Seattle changes.
