Burton’s Solo

When Dan Burton beats up Antoine Bousquet, the clothing designer suspect in the murder of two Chinese seamstresses, he jeopardizes his job as a homicide detective and his life.


Bousquet is released without bail because of Burton’s mistake. When Bousquet turns up dead, beaten and tortured, Burton becomes the prime suspect. The department’s Internal Affairs inspectors, Bousquet’s live-in lover, several Russian gangsters, and the kingpin of the Boston underworld are all looking for Burton. But Elder Darrow, his best friend and proprietor of the Esposito bar, hides Burton and helps save his position on the Boston Police Department and rescue him from death. In the process, they expose an evil scheme by which illegal immigrants were effectively enslaved to work in Antoine Bousquet’s sweat shops.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music plays an integral part of this moving story!

This first book in the Elder Darrow, noir fiction series by Maine author, Richard J. Cass, kept me reading to find out whodunit! Set in nearby Boston, several of the characters travel into Maine near the end of the book. I am eager to learn what happens next in this fast-pace series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action-packed

A great action-packed mystery with awesome characters. This is the first book I have read by this author but I will definitely have to go back and read some of those – like book 1 and book 2. This story kept me guessing to the end. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book. I loved the characters.
