This book is fine. Another learning experience when it comes to Kindle reading. I've got to remeber to check the copyright date, which sometimes takes a little effort to a beginning kindle reader. This thing was written in 92 so no cell phones, no email. etc., which obviously affects the investigative techniques of the characters. Also, everybody is smoking all the time - strange. It got me thnking about how little characters smoke in the current books Ive been reading. It was distracting, but I dont think it really mattered much, as I was kind of bored by the story anyway. Im done with these police procedurals for a while.
