The Good, The Bad and the Murderous (Sid Chance) by Chester Campbell
Vietnam veteran and ex-park ranger Sid Chance goes to work for a young black man that just got out of jail. The ex-con is charged with a murder he swears he didn't commit. Chance is helped out by a quirky cast of sidekicks in this satisfying mystery filled with enough action, twist and turn to please any PI-fan. Chester Campbell also happens to be a member of the Hardboiled Collective, so it comes highly recommended.
