The Way We Die Now by MICHAEL Z. LEWIN with Ed Bishop as Albert Samson
Albert Samson is a cynical, fairly friendly, rather introspective private investigator suffering from considerable under-employment. When, to his surprise, he is hired to help a young man charged with an apparently straightforward manslaughter, he uncovers aspects of the case which do little to dispel either his cynicism or. unfortunately, help his client.
