Inhaltsangabe: "A gritty compelling read," praised Entertainment Weekly of last year's It's Not a Pretty Sight. And the Chicago Tribune called it, along with other Aaron Gunner novels, "terrifically entertaining." With When Last Seen Alive, Gar Anthony Haywood plumbs the shocking all-too-real world of South-Central Los Angeles. Having more clients than he can use isn't generally Aaron Gunner's problem, but it happens that the PI is already on a case when beautiful Yolanda McCreary appears on his doorstep to offer him a second one. Her brother, Elroy Covington, apparently rubbed elbows with Gunner at the Million Man March in Washington DC, several months earlier, then neglected to do something almost every other attendee did afterward: come home. Gunner can't remember Covington, but takes on the case - unprepared for the cold trail the man left behind. At last, Gunner begins to suspect that a black extremist group calling itself The Defenders of the Bloodline is behind Covington's disappearance. The Defenders want Gunner to join them. The FBI wants Gunner's help in bringing them down. And neither party has any intention of taking no for an answer. With When Last Seen Alive, Gar Anthony Haywood explores the harsh realities of contemporary Los Angeles with grim accuracy and deep emotional insight, providing once again "a first-rate story, melding sharp social commentary with lively plotting and somersaulting dialogue" ( The Washington Post Book World)
Über den Autor:
Gar Anthony Haywood is the author of two highly acclaimed mystery series. His series featuring South Central Los Angeles private investigator Aaron Gunner debuted with the publication of Fear of the Dark, which won the St. Martin's Press/PWA Best Private Eye Novel Contest in 1987. The two succeeding novels in that series, Not Long For This World and You Can Die Trying, received wide praise. It's Not a Pretty Sight (G.P. Putnam's Sons; September 10, 1996) is the fourth book in the Gunner series. Haywood's second series features the comic Loudermilk family and includes the novels Going Nowhere Fast and Bad News Travels Fast.
Currently a writer for the FOX television series "New York Undercover," Haywood has also written for the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times. He lives in Los Angeles.
