Anyone know of any mysteries set in present day Detroit?

With abandoned factories and neighborhoods, sort of a post-apocalyptic setting, a good story could be made from the setting.

(Yeah, I know its not just Detroit.)

3. A precient film if there ever was one -
It's a little frightening how much that future Detroit looks like today.

4. Steve Hamilton's THE HUNTING WIND
Main character in the series is Alex McKnight, a former Detroit cop who has moved to Paradise, MI, on Lake Superior.

He goes back to Detroit in this book - although most of the books in the series take place in northern MI and Canada.
