Out of the Past - a Reed Ferguson Mystery #5 by Renee Pawlish
A classic private investigator who is also a fan of old detective novels, classic movies, film noir is about to find himself wrapped up in something that is not so old, but somewhat still classic. Wow, back to the '30s and '40s we go!
I enjoyed this book, mostly because of the unusual circumstances surrounding the reason Reed has been hired at this particular time and for this particular reason. What happened in Reed's past that has him upset? What are the real reasons for him to be paid to keep a teenage girl safe...and also, apparently, her friends? Another classic looms... classic corruption, in the background and in the past. What happened all those years ago to cause such worry now? Interesting and funny in an unusual manner.
