Continuing the Detroit Theme 

Just over the Publisher's Marketplace transom:

Mitchell Bartoy's debut noir novel THE DEVIL'S OWN RAG DOLL, the first in a series set in WWII Detroit featuring a troubled detective who must solve a murder to stave off a race riot, learning the hard way that friends are rarely what they seem, family ties are often deceptive, and the bravest thing a man can do is think for himself, to Ben Sevier at St. Martin's Minotaur in a nice deal, for two books, by Andrea Somberg at Vigliano Associates (NA).

Hmm, Walter Mosley meets Loren Estelman, or thereabouts? Anyway, it certainly sounds intriguing. A quick search shows that Bartoy graduated at the end 2002 with an M.A. in English literature from Wayne State University, which would make sense, seeing as it's located in the city he's basing his series.
