Detective Milo Dragovitch spends too much time boozing until he gets caught up in a case involving two-bit criminals and an old lady on the run. His friends call him Milo. No one has ever called him Bud except his father, long dead, and now Sarah Weddington, stirring painful memoires and offering him his first case since he abandoned his private practice and took a job marking time on the night shift for Haliburton Security. The case seems almost too easy, hardly worth the large fee, just to satisfy this old woman's curiosity. But things are soon exploding all over the place and Milo is turning up grenades, machine guns, a kilo of marijuana and a bag of coke . . . and suddenly Milo is on the run.

Thank god I‘m done with this one. I guess old style, hard boiled private investigator stories just aren‘t for me. And the lead character did SO MUCH cocaine. The author hammered me over the head with how much this guy likes cocaine.

I‘m usually reading one digital and one print book at a time so I started this one this morning. I‘m not sure how it got into my shelf or who recommended it. I also had no idea it‘s the second book in a series. A little beat up but readable. So far the writing has some old timey quips on women‘s looks that I‘m not exactly thrilled with but the story keeps plugging along okay.
