#9 in the Milan Jacovich mystery series . . .

Hollywood producer Sidney Friedman has chosen Cleveland as the location for his new hope-to-be-blockbuster film, Street Games. The “shoot” is just getting underway, and the film's star is the movie industry's most notorious bad boy, Darren Anderson. Friedman hires Cleveland private investigator Milan Jacovich (it's pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovich) to watch over the unruly young actor and keep him out of trouble. Milan, still suffering from the tragic loss of his friend, has no interest in moviemaking but signs on just to keep himself from going crazy brooding.

Keeping Darren Anderson out of trouble is like keeping your hat dry during a downpour. He's too rich, too famous, too good-looking, and too young to handle it responsibly. When he's accused of seducing the fifteen-year-old daughter of a local furniture mogul, Milan gets disgusted and quits the job. But murder isn't far behind—and suddenly Milan is elbow-deep in all sorts of things that have nothing to do with a Saturday afternoon at the movies.

Roberts' ninth Milan Jacovich book, with its intriguing plot, provocative philosophical dilemmas, and strong Travis McGee-like hero, is his best yet. This is a series that gets better and better, and is strongly recommended for those who like their detectives cut from the classic mold. — Booklist
Roberts makes fine narrative use of the unlikely mix of Cleveland's blue-collar ethnic traditions with the fairy tale world of a movie shoot . . . [He] tells his tale in spare and potent prose. His Cleveland stories get better and better, offering far more than regional insights and pleasures. — Publisher's Weekly
Roberts puts his story through its paces with vigor and heart. — Kirkus Reviews
With mystery, believable and distinctive characters, and a smidgen of violence, plus romance, this novel can only add to Roberts' fan club. — Ohioana Quarterly / Ohioana Library
