Wake Up Little Susie by Ed Gorman


Original Title: Wake Up Little Susie

At a car dealership's big opening day, the festivities are marred by the discovery of a corpse. It is September 1957, and America is waiting to meet the Edsel, Ford's top-secret new automobile, whose promotional campaign has redefined the word hype. Sam McCain, lawyer, detective, and car fiend, has been dreaming of the Edsel for months. But when the sheet comes off Ford's new creation, the car is a nightmare. Pastel colored, bulky, and with a distinctively ugly grill, the Edsel draws snickers instead of applause. But in case the dealership owner's day isn't going badly enough, one of the cars has a last surprise in store: a body in the trunk. She is the beautiful young wife of the district attorney, and Sam knows she deserved better than to end up dead in an ugly car. As the local police bungle the investigation, Sam quietly digs into the death -- and finds a secret in his city that could be even more disastrous than the Edsel.

The Night Remembers by Ed Gorman


Original Title: The Night Remembers

Ed Gorman has established himself as a writer whose "lean prose and deep compassion set his books apart from everything else in the genre," in the words of Loren D. Estleman. Now, in The Night Remembers, Gorman delivers his most powerful work to date, a book that at once pays homage to the great "noir" novels of the 1930s and '40s and expands upon that tradition. The time is the present; the setting Cedar Rapids, Iowa; the hero private detective Walsh, a man weary of a past he cannot escape. Walsh has recently retired from the sheriff's office, and he is preoccupied with wrenching personal turmoil. But Walsh's past won't leave him alone; it comes to visit him one day in the person of Lisa Pennyfeather, the wife of a man Walsh sent to prison for murder twelve years before. Lisa wants Walsh to clear her husband's name. Walsh is reluctant, but he is drawn into the case when a woman's corpse is discovered in the Pennyfeather's back yard a week after George Pennyfeather is released from prison. Is George being framed, and if so, was he framed twelve years before? Walsh, torn by the thought that he may have helped put an innocent man through twelve years of hell, starts looking for answers. Are George's former employees and family friends Paul and Richard Heckart as upstanding and compassionate as they appear? Was Lisa having an affair with low-life wheeler-dealer Karl Jankov, the man George was convicted of killing? Who was the woman found murdered in the Pennyfeather's back yard, and what was her connection to the Jankov murder? As Walsh delves deeper into the case, he discovers that things thought long buried can rear up suddenly, ominously, out of the night.
