Lake Effect by Research Associate Les Roberts

Book Description

#5 in the Milan Jacovich mystery series . . . Every Clevelander understands the lake effect, a weather condition that brings plenty of snow, especially in November when election time rolls around. Milan Jacovich (it's pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovich), the genial Cleveland private eye, has never been a political animal. But he owes a favor to mobster Victor Gaimari, and Milan always pays his debts. So he agrees to play watchdog over a mayoral election in suburban Lake Erie Shores in which dowdy housewife Barbara Corns is challenging incumbent Gayton True. Everything seems calm on the surface--until True's wife, Princess, is run down in the street just outside downtown Cleveland's Tower City. It becomes obvious that there is more at stake than the mayor's chair in a quiet suburban city hall. And when he discovers that the True campaign has employed his old nemesis, disgraced ex-cop Al Drago, who carries a grudge a mile wide, Milan knows he's in for a lot rougher time of it than simply poll-watching.
