Dex Morneau is a self-described long-haired heap of sinew and gristle, with too few clients and too much drinking time on his hands. He's comfortable in his own skin, uncomfortable around anyone else's - tired, apathetic, and generally resigned to both, due to his propensity toward circumspection.

Bogart-ish

My first thought was that I was reading the Maltese Falcon. Very old 1940's style wording, real Bogie & Bacall style. One liner even says "Bacall with big booms and Bogie between barbers". Once you get used to the rhythm, good mystery and excitement. Will read next in series.
