Product Description

PI Alo Nudger, at the St Louis airport to pick up a pal, offers his business card to a distraught woman just before an incoming plane blows apart. The next morning she arrives at his office with a wild story about a bomb in an attache case and a fortune in stolen diamonds, and Nudger gets involved because he needs the fee to fend off his greedy, vindictive ex-wife and her sleazy lawyer. Then his new client is tortured and murdered, and when the hard-nosed killers threaten Nudger’s lover and let Nudger know that they are watching his every move, Nudger’s friend and former partner, police detective Jack Hammersmith, offers information and protection.

The series has garnered its share of awards. Both What You Don't Know Can Hurt You won a Shamus for Best Private Eye Short Story and Ride the Lightning nabbed an Edgar for Best Short Story in 1985.

Critical praise for John Lutz's Alo Nudger series:

"Lutz's plotting here has a stark, unusual, genuinely disturbing curve to it—making this another Nudgeresque blend of strong action, lean atmosphere, and downbeat personality."
Kirkus (Dancer's Debt)

"...[Lutz] deserves high marks for another intriguing glimpse into the unusual world of Alo Nudger, a uniquely warm and thoroughly disheveled detective."
Booklist (Dancer's Debt)

"Lutz's economy of language and well-timed suspense work very well in this tale... A taut mystery recommended for all active collections."
Booklist (Ride the Lightning)

"Lutz does an excellent job here... keeping the story complicated and varied but never losing the reader in red herrings or distracting minutiae."
Publishers Weekly (Nightlines)

"... a superb thriller that artfully leaves the reader unprepared for its surprising, shattering climax."
Publishers Weekly (Nightlines)

"The brilliant language and technique of Nightlines serves his [Lutz's] commitment to people as life's greatest incentive and reward. Here's plenty of reason to read his fine new book."
St. Louis Globe-Democrat (Nightlines)

"...Lutz builds a tense, witty tale that he persuades the reader to believe."
Publishers Weekly (Right to Sing the Blues)
