An ok mystery with a very good story behind it.
The story is basically a son who can't get along with his dad, and a mom who fans the flames when she tries to calm things down. She is a well meaning disaster.
It doesn't help that she gets the arranged date from hell for him.
There is a lot of useful information about the drug trade, that helps both the story and the mystery along. It doesn't help that the victim hoards her prescriptions, and has bad interactions which gets our hero in trouble.
there is a bit of politics, which is handled very well. No excessive virtue or vileness, just ordinary vilany.
This is a good workman book. It satisfies your need. It does not pretend to be GREAT LITERATURE, but iit does what it intended very well.

I love to read books that are first in series to see if I want to continue following the character. This one failed to draw my interest in either the characters or the story line. Perhaps you have to be more aware of Yiddish sayings than I am to understand what's going on. I also found a number of the story lines nonsensical.
