Dead Hero by William Campbell Gault

Gault’s 14-book Brock Callahan private eye series is always a fun read. After all, having an ex football hero as your detective is guaranteed to draw in the masses. The Callahan novels have all the usual trappings of detective fiction including mysterious murders, a detective hiding out from the police to protect some lady’s reputation, and a continuation of the investigation even while on the run.

This particular mystery takes the reader to the winding roads that dot the Malibu hills and involves infidelity, bookies, ex boxers, retired football stars, and strippers. It’s filled with constant action as Callahan is always on the run. It’s also lighthearted and enjoyable. It was probably written to appeal to a wide audience.
