Still Among the Living (Matt Jacob) by Zachary Klein

Matt Jacob doesn't want to be a PI. He just wants to smoke dope and watch TV. When his shrink hires him to find out who stole her files he gets involved in a complicated investigation however which forces him to take his job seriously.
Matt is a vulnerable protagonist and quite the anti-hero. He uncovers enough dirty family secrets to make Lew Archer blush in this dark mystery story.
Finally back in print thanks to Polis Books this classic is still very relevant and readable today.

Nice write up, Jochem. Polis Books re-issued all 3 of the original Matt Jacob titles (Still Among the Living; Two Way Toll; No Saving Grace), as well as a new 4th novel, Ties that Blind. There's also a great boxed set of all 4 books. They're available on Amazon, of course. Just thought I'd mention it in case you wanted to review the other books, or in case your readers are looking for the other Zachary Klein titles. Thanks! - S. Frank
