Private detective Brett Cornell believes that he’s never had it so good.
He’s been on a winning streak playing poker in private games being held in the back room of one of his favorite night spots.
He’s recently been “discovered” by an exotic-looking beauty who specializes in homemade adult films.
In addition, he’s been hired to track down a certain missing husband and bring him back home to his anxious wife.
His life, however, takes a sudden turn for the worse when he opens the trunk of his car one evening and finds the missing husband’s murdered corpse stashed away inside of it.
A set-up for a murder rap?
Quite possibly — since EVERYONE HATES BRETT !!!
Set in the late 1980s, Poolside with Brett is the first in a series of novels featuring the tough and crass “unscrupulous bastard” himself – a rude, wise-cracking private detective who happens to be a hugely successful ladies’ man, thanks largely to what he immodestly refers to as his “Adonis-like features”.
In a tale involving murder, blackmail, an unexpected suicide, and other assorted acts of violence and deceit, Brett learns the hard way that there’s a steep price to be paid for being such an unscrupulous bastard – and listeners may very well feel that he gets exactly what he deserves, and more!
