Wisecracking and wise, humorous and humane this is a great new tale with an original twist IAN HISLOP He might not be the fastest PI in Miami, but Harry Lipkin is definitely the oldest. Harry's specialty is taking on the cases the police just aren't interested in - and his latest case is a doozy. Someone on the staff of wealthy widow Norma Weinberger is stealing from her. Nothing fancy, no diamond encrusted teapots or anything, but enough to rattle her. Harry takes on the case, navigating his way - gingerly - through a twilight world of boxing, gambling and gangs to find the truth. Elegantly written and illustrated throughout by the author, Harry Lipkin is a life-affirming tale of ageing and mortality as well as a laugh-out-loud whodunit. The fact that the guy keeps his gun next to his false teeth should tell you a lot.
