The Devil and the DetectiveeBook - 2013
Robert James, a private detective more interested in chronicling his cases than solving them, gets a midnight call from a young woman whose older husband has been found with a knife in his chest. Murder, corruption, and betrayal ensue, but hapless Robert and his sidekick can't stop drinking and philosophizing long enough to keep up.
