Les Roberts CLEVELAND LOCAL (paperback) Milan Jacovich. Condition: Very Good.

Cleveland private eye Milan Jacovich is looking into the death of bright young attorney Joel Kerner, Jr. What makes it so difficult is that Joel was killed nearly two thousand miles away while jogging on the white-sand beach of a Caribbean resort island called San Carlos. And although Joel's sister Patrice is the one who's hired Milan, Joel Kerner, Sr., one of the country's most famous labor lawyers, unaccountably wants him to drop his investigation.On a quick journey to San Carlos, Milan gets mixed up with organized crime on an international scale, which leads to a run-in with an Interpol cop and two knife-wielding marauders in a garbage-strewn alley, as well as an encounter with a couple of oversexed female tourists from Washington, D.C., who want to make Milan the highlight of their trip.Back on more familiar turf, the Slovenian-American gumshoe discovers there are plenty of people who want him to stop poking around in the affairs of Joel Kerner, Jr., including a labor leader who has some secrets of his own.
Comments to eBook The Cleveland Local
Xar
Am working my way through all the Milan Jacovich Mysteries. As a native Cevelander who visits often but has not lived in the city for 42 years, the places described in the stories bring back a bunch of memories. I love the lead character and the mysteries have gotten better and better as the series progresses.
skyjettttt
well written book with sympathetic main character who is somewhat irreverent but likeable

I am working my way through the entire series of the Milan Jacovich Series from the very first one and in order, and can't seem to put them down. Roberts has a way of drawing you into the story, particulrly if you have ever lived in Cleveland. Brings back all kinds of memories.

Obviously this Roberts’ series about Cleveland-based PI Milan Jacovich, a bit of an old-fashioned “gumshoe”, has pleased us as “Local” is the 8th (and our 8th) in a currently 19-book set, as we add one of these in order (best read that way) to our reading schedule from time to time. Milan is a divorced middle-aged man with two sons still in high school; an infrequent dater of women; and a relentless hound dog with any crime case at hand. He has recently moved to an actual office and is starting to keep up with the times, as he now uses a personal computer, and will probably break down and acquire a cellphone pretty soon.

The case in this plot is somewhat different in that a Cleveland lawyer vacations in a Caribbean island where he is murdered, with little recourse from the authorities there, and no jurisdiction with the Cleveland cops. The man’s sister hires Milan to find the perp, which takes virtually all book-long to achieve, with Milan getting roughed up a couple of times along the way. That he agrees to meet the guy late at night seems dubious, and the book ends with a startling, almost tear-jerking surprise. What happens next will for sure be of great interest.

We’re glad we stuck with this series of sleuth mysteries – while they seemed pretty routine and maybe a little dated at first, they are growing on us as the set matures, which is saying something as many authors’ story sets follow the reverse pattern! {3.5}

This is the eighth adventure of Milan Jacovich, former Army MP, cop and now a private-eye in Cleveland, Ohio. He also has a personal life, (divorced and father of two boys), which is balanced fairly well in these books, adding some flavor without intruding on the plots. The series consists of straightforward gum shoe mysteries much like the books of Ross MacDonald, Jonathan Valin, Jeremiah Healy and Stephen Greenleaf, i.e. you ride along shotgun with the protagonist as he goes about solving his case, and these are very good for this genre. That being said The Cleveland Local is weakest book so far in the series.

Situated in his brand new downtown office Milan is hired by a woman, frustrated by the lack of progress in the case of her brother who was violently murdered in the Caribbean while on vacation. Milan makes a trip south to the islands, gets appropriately sunburned and returns to the gray environs of Cleveland with the realization that the solution to the crime resides there. Said victim was not only a successful lawyer in his own right but also was the son of a well known Cleveland labor union lawyer which exposes some sticky connections - and possible motives and suspects - with Dad's past.

After a lot of sleuthing, a couple of painful eye-openers for the victim's family, some after hours reminiscing on fatherhood and romance, some close calls for our hero and Milan tapping the shoulder of his organized crime connections, he gets to the bottom of the case with a somewhat unexpected culprit. There's also a surprising personal twist for Milan at the very end of this book that seemed unnecessary to me but we'll see how it pans out in the subsequent books in this series.

This isn't a bad book; it just never gained the momentum the previous books do. I highly recommend the series - reading it in chronological order is a good idea but not necessary - I just wouldn't suggest starting with The Cleveland Local. You won't get a full appreciation of how good the other books are.

Les Roberts' series about Milan Jacovich, Cleveland PI is outstanding and more should read it. Jacovich is a detailed investigator and I enjoy the fact that it takes time to get to the conclusion of who is guilty. In this one, Jacovich investigates a murder on the island of San Carlos that has deep connections to Cleveland, deep connections including the mob. Cleveland folks wake up and read this series, Jacovich is Spenser in Cleveland. Story...four stars, but the ending of the book moves it to 5 stars. Series and book HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I've had the misfortune of reading this series out of order. Being orginally from Cleveland myself (like everyone else in NC), I truely enjoyed the local color and detail that Mr. Roberts puts in his novels. When a character in a novel eats at a restaurant that you've been to, lives in a building you can identify by sight, it makes the fiction more believable. Les Robert's mysteries are good. They're believable and not over the top. Milan Jackovich is human, and someone you'd like to know.

However, if you have the option, start from the beginning. Something very important to the series happens in this novel. It's sudden, and at the end, and having had forknowledge of it from reading later books in the series diminished the impact for me.
A must read for any mystery novel fan, but even more so for fans of Milan Jacovich. A Marvelous tour of Cleveland's Slavic neighborhoods and its people. Any of the characters including Milan could be in my own Slovenian family. A dramatic yet touching ending left me wondering "what next?".
