"Sleek plotting and an abundance of small diversions brighten Raleigh's second tour of Chicago's ethnically mixed Uptown area, which is guided by the tough-talking, loudly dressed shamus Paul Whelan." (Publishers Weekly)
I have a habit of finding an author I like and then devouring everything they wrote, then being melancholy about being able to find another batch of good stories. I really like the way this author writes, his characters are interesting and he writes dialog in a way that invests you in them. No doubt he is a true Chicago native, his description of people and places is terrific, even the speech patterns are right on. The plot development phase was a bit of a walk for me but introduced me to the writers style and invested me in the main character so was worth the effort in the end. If you like classic styled crime who dun-it fiction written with talent and a flair for great characters you will like this story.
Thought the story was pretty good; but did not care for the reader at all. Very loud inhale sounds all the way through the story making it sound like the reader was always short of breath.
