Item description for Hitman: A Stanley Hastings Mystery (Stanley Hastings Mysteries) by Parnell Hall, Norman Waddell, Scott J. Surgent, Luc Parthoens, Cliff Richards, Jean Ferguson Carr & S. Cao...

Private investigator Stanley Hastings, who doesn't carry a gun, seems to be an improbable choice to protect hit man Martin Kessler, who retires before completing his final contract.

Publishers Description
Private eye Stanley Hastings doesn't want for idiosyncrasies, as fans of this long-running mystery series know. For instance, he doesn't carry a gun. So he seems a particularly improbable choice, among all of New York City's private investigators, for the cold-eyed Martin Kessler.
Not that Kessler requires firepower. He's got a gun of his own - an automatic with a long, ugly silencer - although he'd like to retire it. A contract killer who wants out of the game, Kessler hires Stanley mostly to watch his back in the event that someone of similar professional skills is shadowing him. Someone is, in fact, only Stanley fails to spot him and dead bodies are soon piling messily up.
There's an obligation a PI owes a client, so Stanley figures, and in the face of a situation that with more luck or diligence he might have averted, he determines to sort it out. The hapless PI thus begins an odyssey that will take him from a seedy topless bar to a plush corporate boardroom, and ultimately a Manhattan courtroom, in his attempt to uncover just what did go down, and why, during his client's last, decidedly dirty job.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hitman: A Stanley Hastings Mystery (Stanley Hastings Mysteries)?

Smart & Funny  Jan 4, 2008
Stanley Hastings is, like his creator Parnell Hall, smart and funny. Hastings is a New York Private Investigator, like Hall. He doesn't carry a gun, he goes home to his wife, and he tries to do the right thing. In Hitman, Hastings finds himself embroiled in a case far from the usual slip and fall investigations. With a cast of fascinating characters, plot twists, and crisp and amusing dialogue, Hitman will entertain new and old fans of the Stanley Hastings series, and encourage Hall's readers to check out his other work as well. Read it where you can, even if it's not at the Silver Moon Bakery.
