Summary
"A master of the spy genre crafts an exemplary detective novel, starring a former CIA agent turned private investigator, that already has the feel of a classic Robert Littell has been widely praised as one of the best writers in the espionage genre. Now, he's turned his formidable skills towards crime fiction in A Nasty Piece of Work, a novel that has echoes of the great Raymond Chandler. Former CIA agent Lemuel Gunn left the battlefield of Afghanistan for the desert of New Mexico, where he works as a private investigator from the comforts, such as they are, of a mobile home. Into his life comes Ornella Neppi, a thirty-something woman making a hash out of her uncle's bail bonds business. The source of her troubles, Emilio Gava, was arrested for buying cocaine. He's jumped bail and now she's about to pay the price for it. Curiously, no photographs of Gava seem to exist. And once Gunn begins his search, for $95 a day plus expenses, it becomes unclear whether Gava even existed in the first place"--
