Summary
Product Description: Amos Walker's Detroit visits dozens of unforgettable locations from Loren D. Estlemans Amos Walker series. As Estleman says of Detroit in the preface: It s a hard-boiled town, and the crumbling buildings and rusting railroad tracks of the warehouse district, the palaces across the limits in Grosse Pointe, and the black-hole shadows of the Cass Corridor were made to order for a remaindered knight chasing truth through a maze of threats, deceptions, and inconvenient corpses. City and protagonist are cut from the same coarse cloth. They are the series two heroes. Amos Walker's Detroit allows Estleman's settings to take center stage as noted photographer Monte Nagler turns his lens to Estleman's various noir locations. Some locations are well-known landmarks, like the Renaissance Center, the Wayne County Building, Belle Isle, and Mexicantown, and some are fictional locales such as Walker's home and office. Even when the locations are familiar, Nagler's lens renders them in fresh and unexpected ways. Excerpts from Estleman's novels describing the locations accompany each image and Estleman's thoughtful introduction contextualizes the images and comments on the role of Detroit as a noir backdrop. The photographs in Amos Walker's Detroit show the city in a new light, demonstrating that Detroit's grit and glamour coexist in unexpected places and make a perfect setting for a mystery. Fans of the Amos Walker series, as well as those interested in photography, architecture, and local culture will appreciate this handsome volume
