Review: Gilded Latten Bones by Glen Cook

Gilded Latten Bones

Gilded Latten Bones is the thirteenth book in the Garrett P.I. series by Glen Cook.

Plot:

Garrett is a private investigator no longer: he lives with his girlfriend Tinnie – with whom he’d had an on-again-off-again relationship in the past – and she has completely succeeded putting up a wall between him and his old friends and acquaintances. The sad thing is that Garrett hasn’t even noticed. Not until somebody breaks into their house and tries to kidnap Tinnie. Not until Belinda Contague shows up on his doorstep the very same night to tell him that his best friend Morley, professional playboy and restaurateur – has been the victim of a vicious stabbing. And he might not make it. Garrett plunges into this new adventure to save his friend and to get back at whoever tried to kill him, always wondering whether or not the two incidents could be related.
