Dakota Stevens, the tough, wisecracking New York private eye, returns with his sexy and brilliant associate Svetlana Krüsh in a case that takes them both into the Old West...
The Rich Are Different, the 2nd novel in the Dakota Stevens Mystery Series, enters the rarefied world of a Long Island heiress and her murdered brother who owned an Old West resort in Montana.
To hunt down the man's killer, Dakota and Svetlana must go undercover as actors in a make-believe mining town straight out of 1885.
This highly anticipated sequel to A Real Piece of Work picks up a few months after that difficult case. Dakota Stevens is depressed. He's darker, battle-scarred and less cavalier. He's lost his detecting mojo and hasn't taken a case since A Real Piece of Work. Can he get his mojo back and find the killer?
Like bullets from a Gatling gun, the suspects come fast and furious: eccentric heiresses, greedy CEOs, catty thespians, sexy henchwomen, angry Native Americans, mysterious mobsters, menacing mercenaries, kinky housewives and contract killers.
It's a classic case of East meets West as Dakota and Svetlana follow a trail of clues that takes the reader from the sophisticated setting of The Great Gatsby to the forbidding land of Pale Rider.
National Bestselling Author Dave King calls The Rich Are Different, "Brainy, stylish, imaginative and a great deal of fun."
