Smile Now, Cry Later Publisher's Summary

The first book in a new detective series that just might make you quit your day job.

Chuck Restic hates his job. A 20-year career working in the risk-averse world of human resources for a large corporation has left him comfortably numb...and incredibly bored.

So when a coworker goes missing without a trace, Chuck ventures out of the confines of his Los Angeles skyscraper into the great city down below. His search for the missing man leads him from the shady underworld of Armenian mobsters to the billion-dollar land developments that serve as the lifeblood of the city. Murder lurks at every turn.

Chuck's HR background proves more valuable as a moonlighting private detective than it does in the office. Chuck may not be your typical detective (he prefers a passive-aggressive approach over the old-fashioned fisticuffs kind) but he is amusingly effective at solving crimes.

The Chuck Restic series is a fun romp that mashes traditional mystery with a scathing send-up of corporate America.
