A playwright needs PI Albert Samson to find a thieving Broadway producer in this “fast, funny and brilliant series” from the Shamus Award–winning author (The Wall Street Journal).
 
After a Florida vacation spent at the horse races—turning a measly profit of eighty-two cents before expenses—private detective Albert Samson is back in slushy, freezing Indy, where, thankfully, it’s a short walk from his living room to his office door. One night, he opens it to find a hesitant stranger in an overcoat. With some prodding from the PI, Bennett Willson admits he wants Samson to strong-arm the Broadway producer who stole his play.
 
When it turns out that the cleverly crafted story is as bogus as the client himself, Samson blows the lid off a simmering brew of hatred and revenge—leaving his own life hanging in the balance.
 
Written by a Shamus Award–winning author who “has brains and style,” this crime novel follows the beloved midwestern detective in his most bizarre case yet (Los Angeles Times).
 
The Enemies Within is the 3rd book in the Albert Samson Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Elizabeth Bowen (1899-1973) was an Irish-British novelist and short story writer, known for her depiction of life in wartime London. Eva Trout, Elizabeth Bowen’s last novel, epitomizes her bold exploration of the territory between the comedy of manners and cutting social commentary.

Orphaned at a young age, Eva has found a home of sorts in Worcestershire with her former schoolteacher, Iseult Arbles, and Iseult's husband, Eric. From a safe distance in London, her legal guardian, Constantine, assumes that all's well. But Eva's flighty, romantic nature hasn't entirely clicked with the Arbles household, and Eva is plotting to escape. When she sets out to hock her Jaguar and disappear without a trace, she unwittingly leaves a paper trail for her various custodians–and all kinds of trouble–to follow.

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1968. 1st edition of Bowen's final novel. Dust jacket in protective cover; price clipped at bottom of front flap; dark green cloth with gilt decorations and lettering on cover and spine; top edge light green; deckled edges; binding tight; text clean and bright. VG/VG
