Joe Goodey says different.
After wearing out his welcome at every bar in town, former SFPD Detective turned private investigator Joe Goodey finds himself in desperate need of a case. As luck would have it, along comes a rich man who desires Goodeyâ€™s particular brand of sleuthing to uncover the truth behind his niece's alleged suicide.
Goodey, though skeptical that the girl was murdered, needs the money, and jumps at the opportunity. But he soon finds that the old man was right â€“ and now itâ€™s not just the killer, but an entire cult of former addicts and flotsam called the Institute, who want him dead.
The sequel to the book hailed as â€œ...the next best thing to finding a new and unsuspected Raymond Chandler phantasmagoriaâ€ (The New Yorker), this hard boiled mystery might put Joe Goodey to rest. Permanently.
