Monty Crocetti and Denton Ward
Created by William Mize

"I swear, if I have to take a picture of one more cheating husband, I'm gonna shoot someone."
-- Monty in Resurrection Angel

MONTY CEOCETTI is a private eye with one hell of a convenient boyfriend -- DENTON WARD, who's a psychic. Sure comes in handy when you're looking for clues, I'm sure.

But actually, there's a lot more going on in Resurrection Angel, William Mize's genre-tweaking Shamus-nominated first novel. Monty's not just a gumshoe, she's also a part-time punk rocker and full-time extrovert, while Denton's a moody alcoholic, an introvert and something of a recluse. He's also a genius, and on more than one occasion, something of an obnoxious jerk. And the case they're tackling isn't your run-of-the-mill case either -- it involves amnesia, UFOs, alien abduction, pregnant virgins, abortion clinic protests and that good ol' reliable stand-by, murder.

"I touch things and they tell me stories. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes brutal." Denton Ward says at one point -- make no mistake, he's genuinely psychic. But his "gift" has brought him more than just fame and fortune than he knows what to do with. It's also left him not exactly the most likeable of people (though it does make him a great character). Thank God monty's around to keep him human.
