Junior Bender is a Los Angeles burglar deluxe—a thief’s thief. But he also has a sideline: he works as a private eye. For crooks. When someone commits a crime against a crook, odds are good that the crook isn’t going to the cops. He or she is going to Junior Bender.
With the publication of King Maybe in April, 2016, there are five Junior Bender Mysteries in print, and a Christmas book, Fields Where They Lay, is scheduled for October of this year. The 2014 release, Herbie’s Game, won the Lefty Award as Best Comic Mystery that year. King Maybe has been chosen by Booklist as a Top Ten Crime Novel.
Here’s the order of the Junior Bender novels:
- Little Elvises
- The Fame Thief
