Streeter, the Denver bounty hunter who first appeared in The Low End of Nowhere (LJ 1/96), encounters a formidable enemy in the person of a known murderer released from prison on a technicality. The psychotic felon, Kevin Swallow, has vowed to kill all those connected with his imprisonment, including his lawyer?Streeter's ex-fiancee. Swallow threatens, taunts, kills?all without police or Streeter finding him?until Streeter gets a lucky break or two and teams up with a p.i. involved in the original Swallow case. Authentic action, in-depth characterization, and a nerve-wracking, cat-and-mouse plot make this a winner.

Streeter, the Denver bounty hunter and private eye who made his debut in The Low End of Nowhere , remains heroically unlucky in love. In addition to four ex-wives, Streeter has a host of former lovers, including Carol, who blamed him for the failure of her criminal-law practice and once stuck her hand in the garbage disposal and hit the switch. So when she calls Streeter to ask him to protect her from a man she once defended in a murder trial, he reluctantly agrees to help. Soon people involved in the case are being killed, and Carol's brittle stability is beginning to crack. Stone, a former journalist and now a real-life Denver private investigator, has two winning skills. He creates fascinating women for Streeter to fall for, and his criminals are both violent and dangerous yet self-destructively stupid. A Long Reach isn't quite as much fun, or as delightfully down and dirty, as its predecessor, but the dames are desirable, and one of the thugs literally shoots himself in the foot.

Buy this book if you love faced paced mystery and danger. I guarantee every time you put it down you will make the long reach to pick it back up - it's that good!
What a read, your hooked from the opening line and Michael Stone's my new favorite author. Streeter's awesome, a tough, brainy bounty hunter and one willing enough too even to help his Ex.
He has multiple ex wives, a mess of girlfriend's, been a linebacker, an accountant, and a bouncer.
Both Spencer and Nick Travers came to mind as I read this one and I mean that as a compliment. What really makes this such an awesome read, is Stone's ability to make all the supporting characters so real life and believable.
He even made me like a bad lady, with Carol Irwin. Her whole storyline is so masterfully done, he doesn't give away totally the fact, that she really wants to kill Streeter and blames him for all the problems in her life.
Stone uses a tried and true formula, it's been done before but he puts his stamp on it, full of twist and turns and it's a really good read.
Definitely recommend this one, it's the 2nd in the Streeter series. Picked up the 1st in the series 'Low End of Nowhere', and have the 3rd on the buy list.
I do hope that Stone will add new books to this four book series. (le
