C’mon, Corso, he thought, jiggling his car keys in his pocket. You’re slow and you’re late detest. Sixteen minutes later, at half past noon, Dorsey watched from the window as a bicycle messenger pedaled his way down Wharton, braking to a stop at the front steps. Dorsey met the boy at the door and recognized him as the messenger who had delivered the dictaphone. Do I gotta wait again? the boy asked. Last time you held me up a long while.

The Fall-Down Artist. Report an error in the book. Estranged from his politically powerful father, Carroll Dorsey is an ex-college basketball star now working as a private detective.

Carroll Dorsey's the genuine article and so is his world.

The Fall-Down Artist book. See a Problem? We’d love your help. Lipinski debuts with a downbeat, droll tale which, marked by several wily and congenial turns, cannily mines the Pittsburgh area. Lipinski does everything right.

Insurance fraud investigation--trying to outsmart liars and cheats looking for a fast buck by scamming the system--may not be very glamorous, but these days in Pittsburgh, it's food on the table for P. 1. Carroll Dorsey. And with the economy headed south, fake fall-downs have turned into something of a working-class growth industry. Thing is, though, the more Dorsey looks, the more he sees. This phony-injury epidemic is bigger than it seems, and it might involve some of the heaviest hitters in town. If Dorsey makes the wrong move, he's liable to take the big fall-down himself and he's got no insurance. . .

I read this book at least ten years ago. Living and working in the Pittsburgh area it was great envisioning the described locations
Awene
Carrol Dorsey is an investigator who likes to do his job and doit right! It was such fun to open the pages of this book and climbinside Carroll Dorsey's Buick; from the very first chapter, we were busy travelling along the weel described streets of Pittsburgh trying to unravel this mystery. Thomas Lipinski will take you into the dark alleys and bars of Pittsburgh and then reveal the corruption of high powered people. Lipinski will take you places and excite you as you see the city through a different but realistic lens. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next!I sipped coffee with Carrol Dorsey as he read through his office files and would later find myself sloshing down Rolling Rock beer with him as I anticipated what was to come!

Thomas Lipinski is not only a good professor (I had him as Professor for a creative writing class at Edinboro University) but a good writer. At the end of the semester he gave the class an autographed copy of his first book published "The Fall Down Artist". I took it only because it was free, it didn't seem like my type of book. I later picked it up to read only to judge his writing ability since he spent 15 weeks judging mine, to my amazement I really enjoyed his book. It took a few chapters for things to grab my attention and keep me reading. The name of the book, along with the book description does the book an injustice, with a better name and description I am sure people would be grabbing for his book as a first pick to read. Also, a someone who grew up in and around Pittsburgh, I was very familiar with most, if not all of the locations that he used in his book, and I was able to identify the locations fairly easily. If you are from or around the "Burgh" this is a must read.
