Abstract:

"When Connor wore a badge, he drove a Crown Vic down Oakland's meanest streets. Now he pilots a vintage Alfa Romeo and finds rare classic cars. Inevitably, he also finds trouble. In "VINTAGE CONNOR: The Blonde in the Lotus Elite," the trouble starts when Evie, an old flame who asks for his help. She wants Connor to learn the truth about her daughter Janey, who was found dead in a motel during Monterey's annual classic car weekend. The inquest said it was suicide. But Evie thinks it was murder. Unable to refuse the woman he loved and lost twenty years ago, Connor agrees to investigate. With some old-school detective work and his ex-partner's help, he discovers that Evie may be right. She also may be hiding something. And as his investigation proceeds, he finds himself caught between deception and desire, and knows that both are true. Unfolding like a modern film noir, and pulsing with the rhythm and wit of the pulp classics that inspired it, this sun-drenched noir transports you from the gritty streets of Oakland to the pebbled beaches of Monterey, and will excite anyone who loves a crackling good yarn."--The publisher.
