Thin Walls: Smokey Dalton, Book 3 | [Kris Nelscott]

Thin Walls: Smokey Dalton, Book 3

Smokey Dalton and Jimmy, the young boy he protects, have settled into a new life on Chicago’s South Side. But when Smokey gets hired to investigate the death of a black man in a local park, he realizes that the murder might not be an isolated case. The Chicago Police Department doesn’t really investigate black deaths, particularly near the South Side. Smokey thinks the case easy, until he digs deeper into the history of the area, a history that includes gangs, racism, and secrets so dark they threaten his very existence.

What the Critics Say

"This is mystery fiction at its highest, most gripping level." (Chicago Tribune)

"Somebody needs to say that Kris Nelscott is engaged in an ongoing fictional study of a thorny era in American political and racial history. If that's not enough to get 'serious' critics and readers to pay attention to her, it's their loss." (Charles Taylor, Salon.com)

    "Another Awesome book"

    I really enjoyed this story. I like that the plot keeps you guessing with multiple stories intersecting. You know clues are important but not always sure which case it belongs to. I'm very glad I decided to listen to this series and looking forward to book 4.

    "Continues to be great"

    I have listed to all the books up to this point and just downloaded the next. The character are richly drawn and you get a true feel of what it was like to be black in the late 1960s. smokey dalton, the main character is a complicated man who lives and helps people in a way that show complicated man who helps people both inside and outside the law. It's worth the listen I'm sure you will enjoy it.
