1 Cook, Glen. SWEET SILVER BLUES. GARRETT P.I. SERIES.
Scarborough, Ontario New American Library / Signet 1987 0451150619 / 9780451150615 Mass Market Paperback Very Good Cover Art By Tim Hildebrandt. 
255 pages, 7" H. "It should have been a simple job. But for Garrett, a human detective in a world of gnomes, tracking down the woman to whom his dead pal Denny left a fortune in silver was no slight task. Denny's family wanted to hang onto the treasure - especially sister Rose, with a body hot enough to stop Garrett in his tracks, but a heart colder than the metal he was packing. And suddenly vampires, centaurs, and other nasty creatures are in the way, and Garrett would much rather be at home with a bottle of beer than in the wilds with fangs in his neck. Even with the aid of Morley, the toughest half-elf around, Garrett isn't sure he'd make it out alive from a land where magic could be murder, the dead still talked, and vampires were always hungry for human blood!" Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - book very slightly cocked, light edge wear, tiny corner crease on front cover, small soft corner crease on rear cover, tiny faint number stamp on bottom of text block.
