by Loren D. Estleman"Stuart Lund came in at six-two and three hundred pounds in graysilk tailoring with a large head of wavy yellow hair, blue eyes like waxdrippings, and a black chevron-shaped moustache he hadn't bothered tobleach." That description of a lawyer who summons private detective AmosWalker to a secret meeting with Jay BellFurlong, a world-famous architect who is supposedly dying in Los Angeles,could have come straight from Raymond Chandler. So could characters withnames like Royce Grayling and Lynn Arsenault. That's why Chandler fansshould rejoice that Loren D. Estleman's Walker—who first appeared in1997's Never Street—returns in grand style in The Witchfinder. Walking the wickedly hot streets of a Detroit described as vividly andlovingly as Chandler's Los Angeles, Walker searches for the nasty partieswho faked a photo that shows Furlong's much younger lady friend in bed withanother man, thereby scuttling the architect's last chance for romance. Walker takes a bullet to the head, sneaks out of the hospital too early, andgenerally behaves as though he hasn't heard that this classic branch of themystery tree has been declared dead by so-called experts. Other Estlemanoutings in paperback include Red Highway, Stamping Ground, and Stress.
