In 1958 Ford introduced the Edsel to America. In the Black River Falls, Iowa, the dead body of a 19-year-old girl in the trunk of a brand new Edsel upstages the ill-fated car. Sam McCain makes some troubling discoveries as he tracks down the murderer.
What did you like best about Wake Up Little Susie? What did you like least?
I adore just about any book read by by Pinchot, he's brilliant!
And in truth I love McCain. He's sweet, persistent, and just snarky enough to be fun. My only real problem with the book are those moments when Gorman chooses to inject his 'Democrats were cool in the fifties' silliness. If he could stick to the facts and just tell the story the books would be more fun.
