"Would Mike Hammer take that? Would Max Thursday? Heck, would Kinsey Millhone? V.I. Warshawski would kick a lung out of anyone said that to her."
--  
Danny gets indignant.

Mild-mannered, hornrimmed-glassed former accountant DANNY DURANT has a dream-to be the "uncaring, wise-cracking, unsentimental tough guy of the classic private eye tale. Sam Spade. Philip Marlowe. Lew Archer. Spenser. Amos Walker. Danny Walker."

But, alas, very few hardboiled dicks have a suburban office over their garage, with a sign at the end of the driveway. Or a long-suffering, albeit very understanding wife like Emily. Or can boast that their only client in six months is a twelve-year old looking for his lost dog. Poor Danny. Nobody thinks he has what it takes. And then Emily starts having these dreams, see...?

A weird, offbeat tale from a master of the private eye genre. Gores, of course, is responsible for the highly-acclaimed DKA series.
