THE MARBLE KITE is an enjoyable regional private investigative tale starring a delightful character. PI Alex Rasmussen successfully weaves his way through the mean streets and bars of the low-rent Acre section of Lowell in route to solving his most challenging case.

Has some good moments midst lots of violence; ignores a key clue for 100 pages for dithering and blind alleys.
