Junior Bender, the clown prince of crime fiction, returns in his most hardboiled adventure yeta tale that will take Junior Bender deep into a murderous conspiracy in present day Los Angeles and uncover an increasingly confusing legacy of his burglar-mentor, Herbie Mott, who until very recently was always one-step-ahead of just about everybody.
Its everyday business when Wattles, the San Fernando Valleys top executive crook, sets up a hit. He establishes a chain of criminals to pass along the instructions and the money, ensuring that the hitter doesnt know who hired him. But one day Wattles finds his office safe open and a single item missing: the piece of paper on which he has written the names of the crooks in the chain. When people associated with the chain begin to pop up dead, the only person Wattles can approach to solve his problem is Junior Bender, professional burglar and begrudging private eye for crooks.
But Junior already knows exactly who took Wattless list: the signature is too obvious. It was Herbie Mott, Juniors burglar mentorand when Junior seeks him out to discuss the missing list, he finds Herbie very unpleasantly murdered. Junior follows the links in the chain back toward the killer, and as he does, he learns disturbing secrets from Herbies hidden past.
