I picked up this book at a charity auction sale and was so captivated by it that I bought four others also starring Patrick Kenzie and Angelo Genarro. I passed one to my son-in-law and he asked for the other four before he finished the first. The key to the success of the books is the relationship between the two main characters which hovers on the edge of fulfillment. There is always a violent protagonist and there is a level of violence which can be quite disturbing. This element is reminiscent of James Hall but it is controlled. I would recommend all of the books to any crime fiction reader.

He did it again
Another great book in this series. He really depicts what it's like to live in Boston.
