As New York P.I. Stanley Hastings tells us in this, his 13th recorded adventure, "any resemblance between me and a TV detective is entirely coincidental...I don't have fist fights or car chases and don't even carry a gun. I carry a camera and take pictures of cracks in the sidewalk." Stanley works for a sleazy lawyer who specializes in physical injury suits. It's not a particularly uplifting job, but every time Stanley tries to step out on his own, bad things happen to him. And here, when he attempts to assist the beautiful wife of a bestselling author, he winds up being framed for murder and worse. Fast, funny, and particularly knowing in its survey of the Manhattan literary scene, Suspence is one of Stanley's most rewarding cases.
