Thomas Haftmann, Private Eye: The Short Stories by Robb White

This collection is full of stories about walking around on the dark side of town.  No cozy mysteries here.  Everything is tense, mean, and dangerous.  And Mr. White's character, Thomas Haftmann, walks in fearlessly and with his gun.  He's an ex-cop now a PI, and he's willing to do what he has to if it pays well.

Mr. White sent me a copy of his book for me to read and review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now either in ebook or print.

These are stories you won't easily forget.  The Kneeling Woman is grotesque story about of a survivor who meets her enemy in her new land.  A missing person case turns into a female murderer who doesn't want to give up her new found enjoyment.  Mr. Haftmann is judge and jury on her case.  

The pace doesn't slow down throughout the fifteen short stories.  None of the stories are nice but they hit you in the solar plex and fill your brain with thoughts with you'd rather not have.  After reading this book, I'm glad I live where I do and don't have to fend my way through the characters in the stories!
