Former CIA agent Lemuel Gunn left the battlefield of Afghanistan for early retirement in the desert of New Mexico, where he works as a private investigator.

Ornella has reason to believe cocaine dealer Emilio Gava is planning to jump bail, leaving her uncle $125,000 out of pocket. Gunn agrees to help, but once he begins the manhunt, he starts to wonder whether Gava even exists.

First time reader of this author. I really liked his style and wit. This could easily become a series. I can't believe he is going to be 80yrs old. Am going to be reading the rest of this mans work.

Great foray into the crime noir genre from on of the great espionage novelists of all time. Maybe this will become a series?
