Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Nick Polo, Kennealy's ex-cop/ex-con San Francisco-based PI, narrates his seventh caper--after last year's Green with Envy --smoothly, earnestly and with a note of sanctimony now and then. Polo's millionaire friend Raymond Singh hires him to deliver a cashier's check for $60,000, as well as a letter and an audiotape (both in Hindi), to his cousin Gurbeep "Gordy" Singh in London. After finally connecting with the elusive Gordy, Nick accompanies one of his associates to a seedy nightclub, where he soon realizes that the "slave auction" he's witnessing is for real. The gentlemanly Nick must fight his way out, but the next day he's questioned about the murder of a clerk of Gordy's. Nick is allowed to return to San Francisco, where Raymond's terrified teenage niece tells him that her uncle has vanished. With his reporter friend Jane, Nick tracks a suspected child prostitution ring and faces danger in a newly built fortress-like palace in the country before Kennealy wraps things up with a neat, if fiery, resolution on a yacht near Vancouver.

Jerry Kennealy's Nick polo series is a delight. Light-hearted but with an edge and that's what gives the balance. The characters of Nick and his friends and relatives are nicely developed and the books have the added interest of using real places in San Francisco and surrounds, which had spice to anyone who has been there and enjoyed the city. You could draw comparisons to "Nick and Nora" but this series stands by itself quite nicely.
