really liked it
bookshelves: corruption

Another solid entry in the series. There seems to be two approaches with this series. A) Reveal the guilty party or parties early (about one third of the way through the book) and the remainder is how Dallas captures them and proves them guilty. B) A slower build up to the reveal (about two thirds of the way through the book) with a few red herrings thrown in, allowing the reader to figure out whodunit for themselves.

This book takes the first approach. While that is fine, I'd rather be challenged to use my brain and see if I can figure stuff out. That's not to say that this wasn't an enjoyable book, it was; but sometimes a little mystery would be nice.

What still drives these books for me is the interaction between the characters as opposed to what small mystery there may be in each book. There's a level of smartassness that just makes these books enjoyable. How many murder mysteries have you read where you laugh at various points in the book? You'll do that with this series.
