“A. E. Maxwell wrote one of the smartest, most consistent PI series in recent memory. Big plots, great villains, and a kickass private eye with plenty of humanity. The toughness of Robert B.

Liked it. A little unusual coming from the man's point of view but I got used to it. The plot was complicated enough to keep me interested. The relationship part was a little dry but I believe there is a sequel.
Supposedly the West Coast's answer to Robert Parker...I don't know about that...decent plot, OK asides, both personal and cultural and OK characters...I will read one more to see if we can get up to parker's standards

It is an ok beginning. I love this author writing as Elizabeth Lowell so I will read another and hope the series grows and lives up to my expectations of her style.
I enjoyed this book and the following in the series. The characters and their relationships were intriguing.
