The Detective & the Chinese High-Fin: A John Darvelle Mystery cover
Book Review

Attention, fans of Carl Hiaasen, Harlan Coben, and Robert B. Parker! The author of The Detective & The Pipe Girl—nominated for both the Nero Wolfe and Shamus Awards—returns with another whip-smart, funny, and propulsive mystery featuring singular Los Angeles P.I. John Darvelle.

Private Detective John Darvelle is back—drinking cheap beer, playing ping-pong and sharing his philosophy on everything from work/life balance to restaurants with bad air-conditioning. (He doesn’t believe in the former, he despises the latter.)

Darvelle is hired to find the killer of Keaton Fuller, a well-born Los Angeles man gunned down in his own driveway. The cops couldn’t solve the case, in part because everyone who came in contact with Keaton despised him. Translation: Anybody could have done it. Following a trail of the dead man’s betrayals, Darvelle finds himself in the exotic, high-stakes world of rare tropical fish. The fish are certainly valuable enough to kill for, but is there something more menacing going on?

As Darvelle relentlessly drives toward the truth, a showdown awaits that is at once riveting, visceral, and very, very dangerous. It’s a case only he ...

If you could destroy a densely populated colony world to prevent an alien race from ever attacking humanity again, would you?

The Raakarr have been repelled. For now. But all-out war seems inevitable.

In a surprise move, the Zarafe faction of the Raakarr gives the United Systems a map to key colony worlds owned by the aliens. One of those colonies is responsible for the production of eighty percent of the fuel used by the alien starships.

The United Systems government ponders deploying a planet killer to this world. Initially intended solely for deterrence, the hellish superbomb will rip the crust clean away from the colony, killing everything.

While these high-level deliberations take place, Jonathan faces a court martial for his actions in Vega 951. Meanwhile his ship, the USS Callaway, remains stranded with Task Group 72.5 in a remote galaxy.

Will Jonathan and the Callaway be a part of this final operation? Or will the fleet elect to deploy the planet killer without them, ending the war before it even begins?
