A Bad Risk
This is the second of a series of novels that revolve around JP Parker a 100 year old long time retired New York City private detective from the 30s, 40s, and 50s. The novels are his first person recollections as told to a young writer who is compiling them into book form. They deal with his most notable cases and the famous people who crossed his path. In this case, what was supposed to be a routine investigation for an insurance company during the summer of 1945, instead reveals something disturbingly sinister. Unfortunately Parker has trouble finding someone willing to take him seriously in time to thwart a menacing international conspiracy. Three shocking final twists punctuate a case that not only has him falling in love, but also endangering both their lives as he tries to uncover a frightening plot hatched out of the closing days of WWII.
