Product Description

From Library Journal

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.

From Booklist

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.

Format: Paperback
The first 2 sentences of this book hooked me. "Merton"Buddy" Hinckley wouldn't tell you the truth if you set his hair on fire. As a small- time contractor, he treated his customers like lice, and he had more process servers after him than both Clintons combined." Move over, Raymond Chandler. Read this in one sitting. Even though I hated the ex-girl friend and hoped she'd get iced or at least didn't care, Stone makes you care about the story. It moves fast and has interesting characters. The final "show-down" is hilarious; this should be a movie. I plan to read all the Streeter books.

This book (and the rest of the Streeter Mysteries) are captivating with a rough appeal. The rawness of the lead character, Streeter, makes you scared of him, yet leaves you wanting to now more about him. Stone does an excellent job with the story line that will keep you in suspense until the very end. Can't wait for more of them. If you love a good mystery, look no further.

Cool Pulp! July 22 2005
By P. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Streeter is back and up to his old tricks. Following the bad guys through twists and turns is no easy job in itself...throw in, getting the girl, making wisecracks and being quicker than the police and you have a five star detective story. I love Streeter - he is like a modern Phillip Marlow. Here Streeter has to protect his ex-wife from a psychopath that was her client and went to jail. Now he is out on a technicality and is furious. His specialty is to make bombs/booby traps to kill everyone involved in the case.

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!

Not really a thriller Oct. 27 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
don't think it qualifies as a thriller or even a suspense novel. it's a very typical private eye story, but still a good read. I read the book in one day, so not that hard to keep turning pages.
