He might not be the fastest PI in Miami, but octogenarian Harry Lipkin is definitely the oldest. Harry's specialty is taking on the cases the police just aren't interested in - and his latest case is a doozy. Someone on the staff of wealthy widow Norma Weinberger is stealing from her. Nothing fancy, no diamond-encrusted teapots or anything, but enough to rattle her. Harry takes on the case, navigating his way - gingerly - through a twilight world of boxing, gambling and gangs to find the truth. Harry Lipkin, P.I. is a life-affirming tale of ageing and mortality as well as a laugh-out-loud whodunit. The fact that the guy keeps his gun next to his false teeth should tell you a lot.
