Cleveland private detective Milan Jacovich is hired to investigate a toy manufacturer's accountant suspected of selling the firms secrets, but the case takes a bizarre turn when an elderly Native American tribal historian is murdered and the victim's infant great-granddaughter is kidnapped. 15,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
Sleuth Milan Jacovich is working two cases with unsuspected complications.
Case number one comes with a visit from the owner of a small factory who has what he terms a "security problem." Hired to look into the background of one of his clients' employees. Milan discovers that the man is indeed not what he seems. But why isn't he? Milan must dig much deeper into what has turned out to be a very complex situation before he can answer that.
Milan's other case has a very different history. It's winter, the famous Lake Effect is whipping snow and cold onto Cleveland's east side, and on a bench across from Milan's apartment building an aged Native American man has been sitting stolidly for hours and hours, ignoring the brutal weather. The next morning Milan sees that the bench is empty - and then he learns that the old man has been found murdered.
The crime brings Edgar Ettawageshik to Milan; he wants the detective to find out why his grandfather was in Cleveland - and what connection that has to the kidnapping of his infant nephew from their tiny village in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. His first case, the security matter, is forcing Milan to make difficult moral choices. And while the other case gives him an opportunity to assuage some of the guilt he feels for not having done anything about the insistent presence of old Ettawageshik, it also confronts him with the blind hope of grieving parents who look to him for what he's very afraid could only be a miracle. Milan Jacovich will need all his skills, and even more luck, if he is going to be able to write a satisfactory "closed" on either of these tangled affairs.

This was my 11th Milan Jacovich mystery. (I have been reading them in the order that they were published). It could have been a little shorter -- Milan broods a lot -- but, overall, it was just like the others, excellent. Les Roberts is a great writer who always informs and entertains and keeps me turning the pages. What more can I ask? I intend to read the rest of the books in this series.
