Mac Detective Series 06: You've Got Him Cold by Thomas B. Dewey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Many years of simmering secrets and blackmail explode in a sudden burst of related murders in this complex private eye mystery from the reliable Thomas B. Dewey. The P.I. known only as "Mac" deftly investigates and unravels the puzzling clues that include several seemingly unconnected characters while butting heads with the police as their investigations overlap, and Mac is forced to evade and withhold information to protect a girl in his care. Dewey's exceptional plotting and prose stands tall amongst the bevy of 1950s PI writers and if you can weather the head-swimming number of characters and names then the rewards are substantial. Highly recommended.
