RARA-AVIS: Stuart Kaminsky

I just had the opportunity to read RETRIBUTION by Stuart Kaminsky, the second book in a series about Lew Fonesca. Fonesca is a process server living in Sarasota, Florida. He is hiding from life because he has never gotten over the hit-and-run accident that killed his wife in Chicago. At one point, in defending his depression, Lew says, "I don't want to die. I just to stay depressed and hide." Fonesca is not a violent man, and relies on a rather stoic but potentially violent sidekick named Ames McKinney, who acts as his backup. This novel has two plot lines: a teenaged recovering prostitute and the theft of some manuscripts from a recluse writer coupled with a missing sister case. I would highly recommend this hardboiled novel and I am going to seek out VENGEANCE, the first book in the series.
