Leroy Lad Panek - Probable Cause

Bowling Green, OH, Bowling Green University Popular Press, 1990.  America's detective heroes and heroines are often committed to the abstract, byzantine system known collectively as the law.  US detective fiction is also noteworthy for changing the usual style of writing from the stilted, artificial prose of yesteryear to the more naturalistic syntax of today.  Fine in fine dust jacket.  $34.95.
