This was really a great read.
Very concise and to the point. No flowery language or melodramatic descriptions. Just a factual summary of a handful of cases.
By the ending you wish there were more chapters. Maybe there will be a sequel??
Some of the cases were particularly disturbing, however. The Glatz one especially was almost unimaginable. Great to see justice served at least.
In a world where police don't get the most respect, this guy really did things the right way.

I liked the book. It was just a bit too dry in describing the cases he worked on. Although I suppose, he is a major crimes detective, so his emotional connection to the cases was of a professional distance. It would have been better with more detail about the people and emotional impact of the crimes, not just the testimony of how the crimes were solved.
