One of the first modern regional mysteries, this novel introduced the low key private eye, Albert Samson. Published in 1971, the book was the first of more than a dozen mysteries set by the author in Indianapolis, the most recent being in 2008. Ask the Right Question gave him the first of his three Edgar nominations. He’s also received a Mystery Masters Award, a Raymond Chandler Society award and a Maltese Falcon Society award. The Samson novels have been published in a dozen countries.
“Lewin - or whatever his (or her) real name might be - has come up with a pip of a mystery.” —Paul Robbins, UPI
