Runaway Man

Written by David Handler

Young Benji Golden, one-time aspiring actor, is now working for the struggling family business, Golden Legal Services, which was started by his late father, an ex-cop, and his mother, former pole dancer. Benji and his mother are hired by a lawyer from a prestigious New York City firm to find a missing college student who they claim is due to inherit a large sum of money. However, once Benji delves into the case, he discovers that all is not what it seems.

So many crime fiction stories published currently are unrelentingly dark and violent, and although bad things certainly do happen in Runaway Man, there is also plenty of humor, and lots of colorful characters. Read it for the mysterious twists, turns, many red herrings, but also for a laugh.
