HAROLD Q. MASUR'S FIRST SCOTT JORDAN NOVEL, BURY ME DEEP
192 Pages with a new cover by Doug Klauba
One of the best of the hard-boiled detectives, and one of the most neglected, is the fast-living lawyer Scott Jordan. Jordan is the creation of Harold Q. Masur, himself a practicing lawyer, born-and-educated in New York City, who now presents his cases as fiction. The first novel in the series is Bury Me Deep, a great title that definitely sets the mood. It’s a fast-moving murder mystery that begins when Jordan comes home early to find a beautiful but unknown blonde half-dressed and very drunk in his apartment. From then on things get ever more complicated, as murder and intrigue rear their twin heads with Jordan stuck in the middle, trying to solve the crime and clear himself of a murder charge.
