really liked it

A wonderful noir tale. When a kleptomaniac gets caught up in a murder investigation he begins to look like a good suspect. One of the nicest things about this setup is that the protagonist screws up. A lot. He makes dumb decisions that later come back to bite him. Even better: the real killer is developed beautifully. At the beginning he is cast as a loser with a violent streak, but as his menace grows so too does the revelation that he himself is a victim. No one here is wearing a white hat.

There are striking moments in this, wonderful writing, and the introduction of Skin Kadash, a cop that appears in some of Mr. Cameron's other books (Chasing Smoke and Day One) has left me wanting to follow that character.
