Special delivery : a case for Nick Polo by Jerry Kennealy( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Nick Polo made his debut, Publishers Weekly hailed the streetwise, smart-mouthed investigator "a welcome addition to the roster of California private eyes." Since that time, Polo and his creator, Jerry Kennealy, have proved themselves more than worthy of the considerable praise they have garnered along the way. Now making his seventh appearance, following Green With Envy, Polo leaves his San Francisco home base to do a favor for an old friend. It sounds simple enough: Fly to London to hand deliver a letter, a check, and a cassette tape to a distant cousin of Polo's friend Raymond Singh. With first-class plane tickets, a hefty expense account, and reservations at the Ritz, how can he refuse? Raymond's cousin Gurbeep Singh proves elusive, though, and in the process of tracking him down, the persistent detective runs into several nasty situations. As Polo delves deeper into Gurbeep's affairs, a dark picture emerges. Undeterred, he continues an investigation that takes him from London to San Francisco and Canada and into the vicious underworld of pornography, smuggling, kidnapping, and murder

"In April of 1968 Steve McQueen arrives in San Francisco to film Bullitt. Rough-and-tumble SFPD Inspector Johnny O'Rorke, aka The Fixer, is the department's Executive Protection Officer. His job is to make sure that visiting celebrities are well taken care of. O'Rorke is instructed to take special care of McQueen; the city's movers and shakers are hoping to develop San Francisco into Hollywood North. McQueen takes a liking to O'Rorke, and when Russ Cortig, a member of his film crew, is busted at a wild Haight Ashbury party, he asks O'Rorke to try to have the charge dismissed. Fixing Cortig's arrest sheet is a minor problem, but it leads O'Rorke into a tangled web of intrigue and corruption that includes the murder of one of his longtime informers, a crossdresser who goes by the name of Vanessa the Undresser, tangling with a Chinatown drug lord, being shot at by a sadistic Soviet hit man, going up against a wealthy former Russian Mafia leader now living in San Francisco, dealing with a vicious local gangster, Alec Zek, aka The Swine, and a chasing after a priceless blue diamond known as the Stalin Blue. If that isn't complicated enough, O'Rorke breaks into a real sweat when McQueen asks him to make a screen test for a part in Bullitt."--
