Evan Maitland is co-owner and operator of Collette's Antiques, an upscale furniture store in Chicago. He's also a bail enforcement agent/bounty hunter. On a cold January night, a bail bondsman hires Maitland to find Barry McDermott, a lawyer charged with statutory rape. What appears to be a simple retrieval turns into something far more complicated. Maitland is shot in a gunfight and kills a man in self defense. After recovering from his injury, Maitland returns to Chicago and tries to put his life back together. But someone wants Maitland dead. With assassins on all sides, and only a determined Chicago policewoman to back him up, Maitland has to play this new game by his rules if he wants to stay alive.James Patrick Hunt presently practices law in Oklahoma City.

A nice little start to a detective series. Late 1990s Chicago . Maitland is trying to get out of the cop world he retired from to sell antiques to the wealthy on Chicago's gold coast, but gets dragged back into the cop world when he is asked to track down a lawyer who skipped bail. A quick read, Maitland is a likable guy, I am looking forward to the next one in this series.
