Description
Leland Stutch, creator of an automobile dynasty and master of the town of Iroquois Heights, just outside Detroit, died at an age well over one hundred. Rayellen Stutch, the 30-something widow of Leland, calls on Amos Walker to undertake a most unusual investigation. Since she has more than enough money to see her comfortably through life, she wishes to share the wealth with the various mistresses and illegitimate children Leland had throughout his long, long life. As Walker locates the various individuals and picks up information about Leland's numerous daliances, he learns that a long life of power makes one many, many enemies.

Detroit PI Amos Walker steps into a lethal family feud when the beautiful widow of a powerful industrialist hires him to find her late husband's illegitimate children
Leland Stutch was building automobiles before Henry Ford ever dreamed up the Model T. He dominated Detroit for most of the 20th century as the auto industry soared and then began its long, slow descent. When Stutch's widow contacts Amos Walker, the private eye expects to meet a doddering old lady. Instead he encounters Rayellen, a 30-something beauty with washboard abs and 1 of the most unusual propositions he's ever heard.

Unconcerned with matrimonial vows, the most powerful man in Detroit left mistresses—and love children—all over Michigan. To stave off any future paternity suits, Rayellen hires Walker to locate Stutch's illegitimate offspring and pay them off—a seemingly simple task that draws the detective into a dysfunctional family's war zone and a violent case of kidnapping and murder.

Sinister Heights is the 15th book in the Amos Walker Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
