VINTAGE CONNOR: THE BLONDE IN THE LOTUS ELITE

ROBERT BATY

KINDLE EDITION ~ $5.99

When Connor wore a badge, he drove a Crown Vic down Oakland’s meanest streets. Now he pilots a vintage Alfa Romeo and finds classic cars for rich collectors. Inevitably, he also finds trouble.

It starts when Evie, an old flame, asks him to learn the truth about her daughter, who was found with her wrists slashed during Monterey’s classic car weekend. The inquest said it was suicide, but Evie thinks it was murder. Unable to refuse the woman he loved and lost twenty years ago, Connor agrees to investigate. With some old-school detective work and his ex-partner’s help, he discovers that Evie may be right. She also may be hiding something. And as his investigation proceeds, he finds himself caught between deception and desire.

Unfolding like a modern film noir, “Vintage Connor” is a clever and original suspense novel with enough shady characters to keep you guessing whodunit. Pulsing with the rhythm and wit of the pulp classics that inspired it, this sun-drenched noir transports you from the gritty streets of Oakland to the pebbled beaches of Monterey, and will excite anyone who loves a crackling good yarn.
