I really enjoyed reading 'Dark Side of the River;' I felt it was engaging and the story was entertaining and challenging. The main character is well thought out and develops within the story and the pace is good-keeps you on your toes but doesn't confuse. The author shows excellent knowledge of the city as well which gives a deeply atmospheric novel that I would read again and enjoy. Highly recommend!
