Sweet! Women lie?

Estleman and his Detroit detective Amos Walker is my favorite hard-boiler of all time. He's almost always dead-on laconic, and the settings in dirty and decaying Detroit are perfect for the less-said-the-better writing style that lets Estleman put over a detailed mystery in 180 small paperback pages. Sweet Women Lie is no life changer, just a good way to spend a couple of hours with an old friend. Walker gets involved in a mystery involving the CIA (an unusual twist for Estleman), his ex-wife,and a fading beach-movie actress who was tied into both. But the plot isn't the thing anyway. Read it for the noir.
