A novel by

 
 
It's been twenty long years since a hit man killed Fiddler's Uncle Jake in the Mexican desert, but when an anonymous phone caller offers to turn over the murderer for $50,000, Fiddler realizes that his desire for revenge hasn't cooled with time. Against Fiora's wishes, he arranges to meet the mysterious caller on L.A.'s Venice Beach. Jake packs up the cash and Uncle Jake's old .45, and heads out. Thus begins Murder Hurts, the most thrilling installment to date in A. E. Maxwell's series featuring Fiddler and Fiora, the crime-solving couple whom Kirkus Reviews dubbed "the Nick and Nora of the nineties." This new mystery takes the couple from Hollywood's elite circle of power brokers to the depths of the Mexican underworld to solve the twenty-year-old murder. In the early seventies Fiddler's Uncle Jake was in the business of smuggling along the Mexican border - not for the profit, but for the adventure. But the adventure ended one day with a bullet in Jake's head and one that nearly killed Fiddler as well. Now, with the help of Fiora, Fiddler has to unravel the mystery of who wanted his uncle dead. As they edge closer to the truth, it becomes clear that the murderer will kill again in order to throw Fiddler and Fiora off the trail.
