The Tiger's Child is the second of Neu's books that I've read. We are once again treated to a small-town murder mystery with no shortage of violence of a terminal nature.

From Neu's protagonist, Police Cheif Will Sumner, we get a perspective moored in very traditional male values. The whole setup seems quaint at times, but Neu is honest and self-aware enough in his approach to pull it off. I think Andy Griffith made a bigger impression on my fellow Wisconsinite, Neu, than he did - in syndication

Really nonchalant about pretty much everything. There are brutal and unfortunate goings on, but the characters aren't given much depth, and the resolution of the mystery is no surprise. It's interesting to see a book set in Wisconsin, since that's where I'm from, but the book kind of hits you over the head with it, unnecessarily namechecking Madison dozens of times.
