The exciting sequel to THE GUMSHOE, THE WITCH, AND THE VIRTUAL CORPSE! 2034 was a rough year for Drew Parker. His car broke down, his rent went up, and his partner was kidnapped by a revenge-crazed performance artist. And to top it off, one of Drew's clients was tossed from a skyscraper- after being stripped naked, smeared in human fat, and painted with occult symbols. So far, 2035 isn't shaping up to be much better. What started off as a simple case involving a deaf girl and her cheating boyfriend is getting complicated. It doesn't help that the boyfriend is one of five identical actors cloned from the frozen corpse of a dead movie star. Or that he's up to his neck in a convoluted blackmail plot. Or that the guy is being stalked by some sort of secret agent, a dame in a clown mask with the combat skills of a Navy Seal. And besides, Drew has his own problem to deal with. A personal matter involving a male prostitute, a privatized version of the KGB, and a vampire sex cult. Well at least his Wiccan partner, Jen, is back to help him out. If he can just get her to cut back on the practical jokes. ... and the dating advice.

Review: Gumshoe Gorilla (Gumshoe #2)

User Review  - Genevieve's Human - Goodreads

Not quite as mind-blowing as the Gumshoe, the Witch, and the Virtual Corpse, but still a highly entertaining read for anyone with a soft spot for magic, mystery, or near-future SF. Read full review

About the author (2009)

Keith Hartman grew up in Huntsville Alabama, where he was a weird little boy who didn't fit in. He went to Princeton University, where he was supposed to study economics and instead blew all his time on theater courses. He then started a PhD in Finance at Duke, before realizing that he just couldn't spend the rest of his life teaching MBA's how to screw each other. So he ran away to be a writer.His parents were thrilled.He sold his first short story to a tiny magazine that went out of business, and his first book to Rutgers University, which did not.He moved to Los Angeles a few years ago to direct low budget movies. It turns out that everyone in Hollywood is stark raving mad.And Keith fits right in.
