really liked it
bookshelves: netgalley, mystery, police-procedural

I thought I had read more of Mr. Caunitz's books I probably have but it was way before I started keeping track of them.

I really enjoyed going back in time and reading how the police really worked the cases back in the day. I can't even imagine how they managed to do it! Especially in a large place like New York City.

This was a very well written police procedural about a Lt. who is very dedicated to the Job. He has a colorful group of detectives who work for him. They are dedicated but they also like to play around a bit. I'm sure this was how is was back in that era. I loved the dialog between the detectives, the ribbing they gave each other were hilarious, it was all in good fun. This is not a P.C. novel, it was written before that all came into play. So if you are easily offended then this is not the novel for you. This was written by an experience New York city detective and it shows, he understands the way they guys were back then. it was a true "Boy's Club" and it really was in this era.

If you like older police procedurals you'll love this. I'm going to go back try to read some of these older books, they are such a hoot.

I would like to thank Road for providing me with an e-galley of this novel for my honest review.
