Killing the Lawyers

Reginald Hill: Killing the Lawyers (UK 2010)

From the Publisher:
Joe Sixsmith, Luton's premier PI, is naturally on the side of the Law - Trouble is, the Law isn't always ready to return the compliment.
When Joe turns to the town's top law firm for help in a motor insurance dispute, he gets assaulted verbally by one partner (male) and physically by another (female) and, vowing vengeance, walks out. So it's hardly surprising, when someone starts whacking the partners one by one, that Joe is elected the man most likely.

At the same time he is trying to find out who is threatening all kinds of nastiness against top athlete Zak Oto if she wins her New Year's Day race to celebrate the opening of Luton's splendid Pleasure Dome. Everybody looks suspicious, from her ex-con minder Starbright Jones, through her trainers, past and present, to her own family. And the only reassurance Joe has that he's getting warm is when someone starts trying to kill him!

This is the third novel to feature Joe Sixsmith and it confirms what the critical prophets have said from the start, that in the depth of his humanity, the honesty of his outlook, the bewilderment of his responses to much that the modern world confronts him with, and the strength of his resolve to give everything he undertakes his best shot, Joe is truly a hero for our times.

Joe Sixsmith, the black private eye from the industrially challenged town of Luton, England, first appeared in Blood Sympathy. Now Reginald Hill, one of Britain's most regarded mystery novelists, brings his popular P.I. back for a third time. When Joe visits Luton's top law firm for advice on how to handle a car insurance dispute, he receives verbal abuse from one lawyer and physical abuse from another. So after someone starts assaulting the firm's partners, Joe naturally becomes the primary suspect. Meanwhile, he's been hired to find out who is threatening to harm a female athlete if she wins an important New Year's Day race. And while he pieces together both puzzles, Joe is still trying to dodge the machinations of his matchmaking aunt.
