In the Edgar-Award finalist Lover Man, Artie becomes a reluctant detective when his ex-girlfriend is killed. "The writing is flip and sophisticated," New York Times In Lush Life, Artie falls for a sexy pool player whose sleazy ex-husband has disappeared with $14 million of his company's assets.

"A bouncy, quirky, funny mystery...more twists and turns than a New York cab driver running up the meter," Washington Post In Don't Explain, Jellyroll has become the target of death threats from crazed stalkers, so Artie takes him to a remote island, only to discover their hideaway is overrun with an assortment of colorful killers.
