by (Author)

  • 59,930 Words
  • 233 Pages

This debut mystery introduces a hard-boiled PI with a soft spot for poetry “in a plot worthy of Raymond Chandler or Ruth Rendell” (The Mystery Reader).
 
Andrew Carpenter was a celebrity doctor. That was before he was killed in a hit-and-run on the streets of Manhattan. The police think it was an accident, but his devastated wife is sure it was murder. And she wants private detective Nathaniel Singer to prove it. Singer, who once dreamed of being a poet, now knows that his true calling is the art of catching killers. As his investigation uncovers Carpenter’s powerful enemies—and suspiciously powerful friends—Singer soon finds himself caught in a world of trouble.
 
“With this literate and engrossing thriller, Raymond Miller makes an impressive entrance onto the private-eye stage”—introducing a smart sleuth who’s a worthy successor to Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe and Robert B. Parker’s Spenser (The San Diego Union-Tribune).
 
The Scent of Blood balances emotional distress, heated violence and philosophical quandaries, but still manages a breezy and light-hearted tone. Miller’s having a grand time playing with the genre.” —The Washington Post
 
“A fresh new take on a classic structure—like hearing a twelve-bar blues played by a great new talent.” —Lee Child, author of the Jack Reacher series
