The Set Up
by Gordon Swartzfager
The Set-Up is the first in a series that introduces Jeremiah Funk, a new breed of detective. He doesn't fight, doesn't even own a gun and is both bumbling and gullible in his dealings with women. He lives on a medical pension and two million dollars he can't talk about. Funk is a humorous, uncultured, nice guy — who usually just happens to win in the end.
