Here are his first two explosive neo-noir thrillers, The Chicago Way and The Fifth Floor, together in one eBook, with a bonus excerpt from We All Fall Down, the latest installment, due out in hardcover in summer 2011.
See why Michael Harvey's tough-talking, ex-cop-turned- private investigator Michael Kelly has been called Chicago's answer to Raymond Chandler.
The Chicago Way: PI Michael Kelly--usually persona non grata with law enforcement--is hired by his former partner, John Gibbons, to look into the rape and battery case John was instructed to leave open eight years earlier. The very next day, Kelly finds Gibbons dead. To close both cases, Kelly will have to face the mob, a serial killer, and something rotten behind police lines.
The Fifth Floor: When PI Kelly is hired by an girlfriend to trail an abusive husband, he doesn't expect to stumble across a corpse--and perhaps the answer to one of Chicago's most enduring mysteries. The ensuing investigation takes Kelly to places he'd rather not go, specifically to City Hall, where he gets embroiled in a scam that stretches from current politics back to the night of Chicago's Great Fire, to face a killer bent on rewriting history.

Posted July 13, 2011 by Mike M , Ft. LauderdaleWhat Dennis Lehane is to Boston and Loren D. Estleman is to Detroit, Michael Harvey is to Chicago. His tarnished white knight is a private eye who still refuses to knuckle under to the Windy City's hereditary mayor and the political expediencies that drove him from the police force. Chicagoans will recognize the landmarks, and probably learn some things about their city they didn't know, while finding it hard to stop reading for other things like food and sleep. These are his first two novels, and a terrific chance to join a growing number of fans who have gone on to read "The Third Rail" and can't wait for his 4th novel, this year (2011).
