Product Description

Volunteering at a local soup kitchen, Polo gets to know Scratchy, a self-described "sidewalk architect." With a Food for Vets sign in hand, Scratchy spends his days at his "office," a freeway off-ramp in downtown San Francisco, where certain drivers are exceptionally generous. Scratchy asks Polo to check the license-plate numbers of the charitably-minded individuals, and Polo comes up with a multimillionaire shipowner and a mysterious ex-CIA agent. But before he can give Scratchy the information, the man is dead, the apparent victim of a hit-and-run.

The police have little interest in the accidental death of a homeless man, so at the urging of the soup kitchen’s operator, Father Tomasello, Polo decides to investigate. What he finds takes him up against the Dragon Head of the Chinese Mafia, whose connections with the shipping magnate and the ex-CIA agent threaten not only Polo, but his friends and family too.

Praise for Jerry Kennealy and the Nick Polo series:

Green With Envy

"The sixth Nick Polo story again blends the Pi's wry commentary on modern society—especially as experienced in San Francisco—with fast- paced adventure to create a thoroughly entertaining romp."
Publishers Weekly

"A fine entry in this underrated series."
Kirkus Reviews

Polo's Wild Card

"Kennealy has a knack for weaving local scandal with San Francisco topography... Add to this the latest methods in picking locks, buying burglar gloves, computer hacking (private-eye style), and use of criminal indexes... we get quite a bit for our money from ex-con and ex-cop Polo."
San Francisco Chronicle

"Polo's at his most raffishly amusing throughout... Highly recommended for people who read mysteries for the detective's company...."
Kirkus Reviews

Polo in the Rough

"Diverting caper featuring PI Nick Polo... Kennealy, a PI himself, weaves a series of twists and turns that reveal a sure-handed knowledge of detective work."
Publishers Weekly

"Kennealy's finely crafted stories always hold my interest. Never a wasted word."
San Francisco Examiner
