From the critically acclaimed author of "The Highly Effective Detective "comes this deliciously funny follow-up featuring the lovable but bumbling P.I. Teddy Ruzak.
After the state shuts him down for practicing detection without a license, Teddy thinks his investigating days are over. Then he discovers the body of a man outside his office, a homeless man whom he had befriended just the day before.
Teddy suspects foul play, but the police think he's barking up the wrong tree. Then his normal befuddlement is exponentially enhanced by two very unexpected--and potentially very dangerous--visitors from the pound.
With his signature wit and gripping suspense, Richard Yancey has written yet another irresistible page-turner. It is sure to win him and Teddy Ruzak a whole new series of fans.
Praise for "The Highly Effective Detective

"Move over, Sam Spade. A priceless nebbish has joined the private-eye ranks. An adorably quixotic adventure."
""Full of wry humor, action, and plot twists. The novel's biggest asset is quirky storyteller-sleuth Teddy Ruzak."
""Funny the way Donald E. Westlake's novels are funny. Witty remarks abound, and the central character is a keeper."
""Quick-moving and funny."
---"Entertainment Weekly," Hot Summer Books
