Guilt Enough to Go Around: Three Nebraska P.I. Stories

For Nebraska, the Omaha-based private detective and hopeful mystery writer, things are seldom as straightforward as they first appear. These three stories, featuring characters from the internationally published series of novels that began with The Nebraska Quotient (nominated for a Shamus Award by the Private Eye Writer of America), illustrate the determination, resourcefulness, and, sometimes, deliberate rejection of common sense that drive Nebraska toward the ultimate truth—whether he likes it or not.
