If you like entertainment that lets you think then this book is for you. With Sanford the Flower books are almost always the same - no mystery as to whodunit. But that misses the point. These are wonderful stories of mid-west Americans that for this left coaster hit all the romantic notions of what are the real shades of grey in the world of crime. The same mass culture that produces intelligent detectives has the opposite effect on alienated youth. Nobody does it better or more entertainingly than John Sanford.
MacAvoy is annoying and unrealistic as a fighter, but his reporter's drive keeps the plot moving. The plight of newspaper people is described well, but journalism is far from dead. The shocker is the online data storage role. I'm thinking twice about using such a service.
The reader was good, and because he was a younger voice, perhaps the fight scenes with the 'old' reporter seemed more realistic.
Keller's moral equivalency at it's best! Only this time Keller gets drawn into political intrigue and love - there's even room for another sequel, though I'm not sure that's Block's intent. Also, the reader isn't so bad, though I missed the author's voice.
