Break out the champagne--it's the twenty-first Amos Walker noir detective novel!

Much like author Loren D. Estleman, Detroit private investigator Amos Walker has long been reluctant to embrace technology--he only recently got his first cell phone. Walker is hired to do a twenty-first-century job--recovering HDTV converter boxes stolen from a retailer whose shop also does vintage resale business. Before long, the case turns old school: both a suspect and the man who lost the boxes are murdered, and Walker ends up working with both the local police and the feds. The converter boxes were being used to smuggle high-grade heroin that's been killing off junkies left and right, and it's up to Walker to track down the missing dope.

Old friends and even older enemies resurface before this story is done, and Walker has to take a few beatings if he wants to find out who has been trafficking the drugs and bring the crooks to justice. This old dog still has a few new tricks, and there hasn't been a case yet that Walker couldn't crack.

Published in 2011, "Infernal Angels" is the 21st novel in the Amos Walker hardboiled private eye series. The plot was built around two ideas. The first idea was the U.S. federal government mandating that television broadcast signals had to be digital. Viewers with analog television sets had to buy electronic boxes that converted the digital broadcast signals to analog signals. The second idea was the metal salvagers who stripped copper piping and wiring from abandoned buildings in Detroit.

Unfortunately, the plot doesn't flow. IMHO, I would rate "Infernal Angels" at only 3.50 stars.
