Created by Loren D. Estleman
Motor City private eye RALPH POTEET is hardly the knight in the shiniest armour. In fact, he's kinda scuzzy, a low-rent bottomfeeder who calls himself a private investigator, but this walking stain will stoop to just about anything, including blackmailing the Catholic church, to keep himself in Four Roses (with a Bud chaser) and to pay the rent on his crib over a dirty bookstore.
But honestly? He's also a hoot, a real rip on the whole myth of the gumshoe as some kind of streetwise saint with a gun. And Ralph is just too dumb, and too much of a loser, to really dislike.
He makes his home in Detroit, the same stomping ground as creator Loren Estleman's best known creation, tough-talking, wise-cracking Motor City shamus, Amos Walker.
