Grant Macallan has a low-rent legal practice, toughness, and that's about it. When Grant's beautiful, mysterious lady, Gwen Alvarez, calls him with a new case, of course he takes it. Grant and Gwen's star-crossed trajectory through the Southern California landscape takes them to the heights of power, and the depths of disaster. The Wounded Man is an undiscovered gem. The story moves quickly, through dialogue and stunning action. The main character and sometime narrator is Grant Macallan, an ex-marine and ex-DA who is battling cancer while keeping together his small criminal law office. The novel swirls around his relationship with Gwen Alvarez, a corporate lawyer and Harvard Law graduate, who happens to be Grant's lover. The major and minor characters are fully realized and intriguing. Grant and Gwen hurdle through a tapestry of corruption, sex and murder towards a shattering conclusion. The conclusion's impact is like the last note in The Beatles', "A Day In The Life."

    The Wounded Man is a very good book. The major and minor characters are intriguing and unpredictable. This book is a mystery, but it's also a finely drawn portrait of the internal impact of battling cancer. Although the conclusion is a shocker, it makes perfect sense. At first glance, the suspenseful plot appears to be somewhat conventional, but that's not the case. In The Wounded Man, some things are not as they appear to be. The stunning ending reveals who are the killers and reveals an unconventional plot. Another big difference between The Wounded Man and many "grocery store" mysteries is that The Wounded Man has literary merit. The observations are sharp and the prose is limpid. Highly recommended.
