Fadeout: A Dave Brandstetter Mystery

by Joseph Hansen
£8.99   paperback  Hodder & Stoughton (2015)

Fadeout: A Dave Brandstetter Mystery by Joseph Hansen Newly available in print, Joseph Hansen's classic mystery series starring Dave Brandstetter, a gay private eye in 70s and 80s California. 'After forty years, Hammett has a worthy successor' The Times
 
Radio personality Fox Olsen seemed to have it all: devoted wife, adoring fans, perfect life. When his car is found crashed in a dry river bed, all of California mourns. But there is no body...
 
Insurance investigator Dave Brandstetter is hired to dig a little deeper. And the more he looks into Fox Olsen's life, the more it seems as if he had good reason to disappear.
 
Fadeout is the first novel starring Dave Brandstetter - one of the best fictional PIs in the business, and one of the first ever gay ones. Joseph Hansen's groundbreaking novels follow Brandstetter as he investigates cases in which motives are murky, passions run high, and nothing is ever as simple as it looks. Set in 1970s and 80s California, the series is a fascinating portrait of a time and a place, with mysteries to match Chandler and Macdonald.
