Series: Daniel Kearny Associates (DKA)

Summary :

More the 30 years ago a young private investigator named Joe Gores was encouraged by the great mystery critic Anthony Boucher to record his experiences in a series of short stories for Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. Thus began the first series of tales that looked at a PI's cases as they actually happened, from the very serious (for instance, when a repo-man someone who repossesses cars when loans are in default can send a woman to suicide) to the comic (as when the Dan Kearny associates have to grab a fire engine that hasn't been paid for). And the characters are just as colorful, ranging from professional conmen to a gypsy who issues a curse as her car is driven away.

Stakeout on Page Street includes a new introduction and prefaces to each story by the author, and a complete checklist of Joe Gores's mystery novels and short stories.
