by R. Scott Bolton
DEAD DICK is the fifth novel by R. Scott Bolton, following his previous books in the H.B. Fist science-fiction series, and the first in the Brace Heller novels, KNIFEPOINT. DEAD DICK tells the story of Richard Keane, a classic private investigator who finds himself on the most important case of his life … even though he’s been dead for nearly seventy years. The job seems simple enough: Deliver an eight-year-old girl from Sin City Las Vegas to the holy mission in Santa Barbara. However, with an evil magician, a gang of demons and a host of other surprises awaiting him, Keane discovers the mission may not be as easy as he hoped.
