This was the first of the gumshoe Amos Walker books I've read. Been a fan ever since. Way back in 1987 there was this place called "The Worlds Biggest Bookstore" in Toronto. That's where I first encountered this character. People where out and about more in literary haunts in those pre-internet days.
More Detroit noir, very Chandleresque. I found myself wondering, though, if this novel was a snapshot of the era and place (1980s Detroit) or racist. I'm going to give the next book in the series a try before I make a judgment.
3.5/5-Another solid addition to this series, I will read them all eventually. Old school crime noir with a hard boiled wise cracking PI, better than average for the genre.
pretty decent mystery/thriller novel. hard-boiled dialogue.
I hadn't heard of the author before and I may wind up checking out some more of his work.
Great, great hard-boiled detective novel so far.

Not bad, but I did skim through a lot.
