Another Steven Womack book, quick read, good story, enjoyable local culture. The whodunit wasn't as satisfying to me as in Dead Folks Blues but this book had more drama and was set in East Nashville (where I live now) so was more interesting to me in those aspects.
As is usually the case with these murder mysteries, the writing is lowly. Functional, but predictable. I like the book, though, because it's set in Nashville, so it's fun!
