All's Well That Ends Well
by John G. Stockmyer
Book #5 in the Z-Detective Series
Once again, Big Bob Zapolska, lowly private eye, is having trouble with his friends. First, there is Susan, his "true love" and long-time girlfriend. It seems that gorgeous Susan has turned into an exercise nut and wants Z to share time with her engaged in a variety of sweaty, ligament-straining workouts. Fun. Fun. Fun.
Then, there's the plea from Z's piece-on-the-side "ghostbuster" Jamie Stewart. She asks Z to help her "sit" on an yet another isolated "haunted" house, and discover who is causing problems out there. How hard could that be?
Finally, there's the call from his mob connection, Johnny Dosso. Johnny wants Z to investigate a kidnapping --- the kidnapping of Johnny's wife, no less! Since Z has sworn to never work for the mob --- this is merely a personal favor for Johnny. So what is Z being hired to do? Just stand by and collect a healthy fee. Of course, when the time comes, Z might have to deliver the ransom money or do other "small" services connected with the case --- but nothing that could get Bob Z into trouble. Easy money. And a lot of it!
The question "haunting" Z is, will these "simple tasks" turn out to be more dangerous than his friends have promised?
Surely not! How could you even think such a thing?
