Now a private detective in the Chicago suburb of Foxport, Quint investigates the apparent suicide of a judge who had just been indicted on bribery charges. The judge’s widow stands to lose a sizeable insurance policy if Quint can’t prove it was murder. And she asks so nicely.
First let me say that Marc Vietor, the narrator, is the Bourbon voice in this detective story that just rocks this book.
There's enough clues to figure out the crime here, but it is meat and potatoes crime. There are no freakishly sick criminals who devise gross ways to kill people or over the top bad guys who haunt your sleep. These are the sort of crimials who kill for sex and money and this over the hill gumshoe doggedly hunts them down. He's a lousy streetfighter and has a shelter dog who is brilliant at catching a frizbee. I like this detective and will continue through the entire series. I'm hooked.
