Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author

"Mortimer Angel is my favorite private eye." (John Lescroart, New York Times best-selling author)

Early in July, Northern Nevada’s senior Internal Revenue Service agent, Ronald Soranden - disliked by every agent in the Reno IRS office - vanished without a trace. In September, he makes a dramatic reappearance, of sorts. His skull - stripped clean and white - is dropped through the slashed top of a Mustang convertible. The vehicle belongs to Lucy Landry, PI Mortimer Angel’s gorgeous young assistant now working with him on a seemingly unrelated embezzlement case. But Mort is a former IRS field agent in Reno. He’d done his time during the tyrannical reign of Soranden, quitting, he says, "when I discovered I have a soul." Now that his former boss' head has appeared, he and Lucy find them themselves under the annoying surveillance of a pair of IRS enforcement agents.

When the FBI are brought in to investigate the murder, Mort and Lucy realize shocking details about their own case - primarily Soranden’s involvement. It becomes evident that events and suspects of the embezzlement case and Soranden’s murder are heavily entangled with those enmeshed in an ugly case of blackmail. Mort and Lucy are roped tighter and tighter into the Soranden investigation while they grapple with the deadliest situation of their PI careers. Mortimer Angel has been in harrowing, lethal situations before and has suffered incalculable losses, but none more horrifying than the trap embedded in Gumshoe Rock.

Still laughing!

Hilarious! The publisher's blurb is a pretty good start, but it gets more convoluted and ROFL with each page. No erotica but funny innuendos, and Mort is a heavy drinker of. ..noncaf soda. The mystery revolves around a satire on the IRS with guest appearances by a couple of cartoonish FBI agents and other caricatures. The dialog is fun, the characters certainly are, and it has a real plot! Loved it!
Louis B Jack is fantastically believable as Mort who is both character and narrator in a low key, tongue in cheek way.
I won this audiobook in a giveaway!
I really win!

Excellent read

I have enjoyed all of the previous books in the Mort Angel series and this new book didn't let me down. The story line was great band comedic banter was top notch.

Louis B Jack has dulcet tones

I have to say,..... I love listening to Louis B Jack’s narrations,.... his voice engages me immediately and his inflections are invigorating and I savor his audiobook catalogue.
