Amos Walker is on the case of the aging pulp fiction writer Eugene Booth who has run out on a publishing deal that was supposed to revive his one-lucrative career. Plunging into booth's seedy world, Walker's chase eventually brings him to a lakeside bungalow in Michigan where he finds Booth pouding out his first novel in a decade with the aid of a 50-year-old Smith Corona and a bottle of Bourbon. The writer reveals to Walker that the events recounted in his long-ago bestseller, Paradise Valley, are a lie, and that the truth will be told in his new book. But when Walker returns to see Booth again, he finds the voelist hanging in the bathroom...and the pages he has written missing. Now it is up to Amos Walker to find the truth behind the supposed suicide of a belatedly honest man and to fulfil the victim's last wish - to share that truth with the rest of the world.
