The 3rd in the usually excellent Ronnie Ventana series didn't work for me personally, but it was nominated for an Edgar, so that's something. Although possibly it's just proof-positive that I should never sit on an awards committee.

Missing from this Ronnie installment: a coherent plot, ex-boxer Blackie Cooper, and the entire city of San Francisco. My placeporn! I need it!

Takes place in San Francisco, so it was fun to identify with some of the landmarks. One of several "Ronnie Ventana" mysteries. A quick easy read, not really brain challenging.
White, Gloria - 3rd in series

Ronnie Venutra - daughter of cat burglars

A different kind of protagonist - very enjoyable
