The Naked Detective
Pete Amsterdam never wanted to be a private eye. Then, when he wasn’t exactly dressed for business, the inevitable blonde showed up at his backyard hot tub.
“Funny, suspenseful, romantic, and wise…Shames is a terrific writer with real heart.”—Detroit Free Press
“Funnier than Elmore Leonard, and a competitor for Dave Barry…a fun romp of a thriller.”—Oxford Times (Great Britain)
“A light-hearted, sardonic homage to the detective novel…The charm of this literary exercise comes with the self-conscious indulging of a fantasy…that we can have the thrill of adventure and risk and danger in our lives and that we would acquit ourselves well in conflict with gamblers, goons and crooked cops.”—The New York Times Book Review
