Served Cold

Ed Goldberg

Lenny Schneider, New York PI, is happiest listening to jazz or dining at Old Kiev and taking an occasional low-risk job. However, when hired to prevent a Jewish Holocaust survivor from exacting revenge on his former prison-camp guard, music and food take a backseat to danger—and difficult moral questions. A story of old ideologies and passions—of a gumshoe, political in the ‘60s, who’s had a major bout with ambivalence for decades. Schneider leans heavily on his sense of humor to get him through the day.
