“There just aren’t enough hard-drinkin’, two-fisted, pistol-packin’ playboy accountants, if you ask me.” The Thrilling Detective
MURDER ON THE ROCKS
Steve Bentley has a tendency to get into trouble… and this time it comes from two women, daughters of an American diplomat, who want him to find a 29-carat emerald known as Madagascar Green is missing from their father’s safe… and the search for it soon pits Steve against drug smugglers and killers.
END OF A STRIPPER
Linda Lee was a stripper… but to Steve Bentley, she would always be the honey-skinned child with hair the color of spun taffy, a warm-hearted kid with soft lips and soft body. And now she was dead.
“As ‘Robert Dietrich,’ E. Howard Hunt wrote ten novels starring Steve Bentley, a Washington D.C. accountant who solves murders in private-eye style. The first thing to know about Bentley is that he isn’t just a paper-pushing CPA. He’s a Korean War veteran who was employed at one time by the U.S. Treasury Department. If you love vintage crime-fiction you should enjoy this tale.” The Paperback Warrior
HOUSE ON Q STREET
Steve agrees to help Francie Ballou, a teenage addict and mother who is ensnared in a murder plot that involves the mob. To get her out of it, Steve may have to do some killing himself…
MISTRESS TO MURDER
In life, he’d been every inch The Baron… master of an old Victorian mansion in Georgetown and all he could survey. But now Baron Alejandro Esquivel was dead…and it was up to Steve to find out why.
MURDER ON HER MIND
She was a lush-bodied, Latin Chanteuse with a song on her lips, passion in her heart, and murder on her mind… and Steve could be her next victim.
She Died The Way She Lived… in the Heat of Passion. Now Bentley is Going to Make Her Killer Pay.
“A Washington-based CPA, Bentley fits the stereotype of a private eye better than an accountant. He’s is hard-hitting, adventurous and attractive to women. The most interesting novel, from an historical point of view, is ‘Angel Eyes.’” Encyclopedia Mysteriosa
Steve Bentley travels to the Virgin Islands, a tropical paradise where the weather is hot and the women are hotter…to find out who killed his old friend, a casino boss.
“A solid potboiler… it’s got enough stylistic flair, high-octane twists, and layered mystery that make it a perfect page-turner. Hunt’s execution is enjoyable; his prose is superb at times, reminding you that he beat out Gore Vidal and Truman Capote to win a Guggenheim Fellowship. It’s the kind of book that really grows on you, with the depth and complexity of the murder-mystery plot drawing you in.” Battered, Tattered, Yellowed And Creased
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Robert Dietrich was a pseudonym for E. Howard Hunt, better known for his role in the Watergate scandal rather than for his great crime novels. Gore Vidal wrote this about “Robert Dietrich” in The New York Times: “In 1957, H.H. gave birth to ‘Robert Dietrich,’ who specialized in thrillers, featuring Steve Bentley, formerly of the CID and now a tax consultant. H.H. plainly enjoys composing plausible (and implausible) biographies for his characters—not to mention for himself. In Contemporary Authors, H.H. composed a bio for his pseudonym Robert Dietrich, taking ten years off his age, putting himself in the infantry during Korea, awarding himself a Bronze Star and a degree from Georgetown.”Robert Dietrich / Anthologies, Mysteries & Thrillers
