I can understand the reviews by the folks that did not like this book. It starts out slow, and there are various little stories that take the whole book to connect. But, the descriptions are wonderful, the narration is excellent, and I found myself completely engrossed. It is not so much a police procedural as a psychological portrait of the cops and the suspects. I found it a true joy; but perhaps it is not for those who prefer a more direct writing style.
This was a good read; I like short stories, and these were very evocative. I especially liked the connected short stories. The narrators all did an excellent job. The subject matter is intriguing; relationships mostly, and poignant and funny at the same time.
