Poor Stanley Hastings. After getting hired by a hitman and nearly getting shot, the put-upon PI needed some fun, so when a gorgeous damsel in distress walked through his office door she seemed just what the doctor ordered.

Wrong again.

The fair maiden turned out to be a married mom who wanted Stanley to find out why her teenage daughter was skipping school. Playing truant officer wasn't exactly Stanley's idea of fun, but at least it should be easy.

Fat chance.

Stanley being Stanley, nothing goes right, nothing is as it seems, bodies start to pile up, and faster than you can say 'fall guy', guess who's left holding the bag?

Before the case is resolved, Stanley will be nostalgic for the good old days, when all he had to worry about was a hitman.

Stanley Hastings is not your typical p.i. He does get himself into some bizarre situations. A bit too far fetched at times, and the constant word play between the characters tends to wear the reader down after a while. However, it is an easy read and some may find it quite amusing.
