Summary
"Harry always looks on the bright side of things--until the day he stumbles into a situation that leads to darkness, danger, and death. Now Harry doesn't know if he's tracking a killer or if the killer is tracking him and his assistant Friday, the only woman he has ever loved. Turning to the authorities only makes things worse. With Harry and Friday on the run--hunted by the police, the killer, and even Harry's friends and relatives--the chances for survival look grim. Outmanned and outgunned, Harry discovers that he has challenged men as ruthless as they are powerful, as cunning as they are cruel. He knows only one thing for sure: He can trust no one"--
Summary
"An old-school PI is plunged into modern danger and conspiracy in Fast Shuffle, a gripping mystery from TV screenwriter and producer David Black. Harry Dickinson is a used car salesman who dreams of being a private detective. His girlfriend, Friday, finds this charming, though she warns him not to get carried away. The local cops are becoming fed up with him. His sister and brother-in-law think he's unstable and too old for such fantasies. They want him locked up. When Harry stumbles upon the case of a missing woman, he decides to investigate. However, the situation is far more complex-and more dangerous-than he imagines. Turning to the authorities only makes things worse. Harry witnesses a murder, but no one believes him. With Harry and Friday on the run-hunted by the police, the killer, and even Harry's friends and relatives-their chances for survival look grim. But the man everyone believes is crazy may be the only one who can crack the case"--
