Read from July 09 to 16, 2010

This book was a notch above the rest of the Hard Case books that I have read in my opinion because the tone of the novel is not mocking. It's a crime novel with a gritty, serious feel to it. Several of the others in the series, while enjoyable, are basically humorizing hideously depraved crimes, but this book keeps the serious tone and the noir-ish pun making in sort of separate spheres.
The plot is well made and not predictable. The characters are interesting and not as stereotypical as they can tend towards in the genre, including the narrator, who often thinks in terms that are far more human than the usual crime-novel detective.
Overall a great read.
