Gloria Mccracken
A mystery in a somewhat unusual setting (Saratoga, in upstate New York) featuring a PI, ex-cop, with more than a passing acquaintance with the racing that takes place at the famed horse track, although it plays little part in this particular book. The books have a slightly Runyonesque flavor to them.

A new author to me. This book was written in 1993 but still a great read for me - especially as I live in Saratoga Springs and am familiar with the places in this tale. The author writes with an acerbic whit that I appreciate.
This is a quick read of about 200 pages.
I enjoyed the setting, Saratoga Springs, but unlike a few others I have read, it took a LONG time to finally get to the action (last 25 or 30 pages). It was more introspective and for me, not that good of a read.

I grew up in Saratoga, so enjoyed the descriptions of the town and surroundings. Fairly predictable, easy read.
Really like the Charlie Bradshaw mysteries....familiar places....believable and amusing characters.
