A really good novel. A very simple, straightforward plot that is very well done. It is a police procedural that is elucidated in chronological order, step by step. It isn't flashy but what makes it so good is the empathy and insight Price shows for each of the characters, from the detectives, to the witnesses, to the perps to the friends and family of the victim. Price has a gift for excellent dialogue and great novelist's understanding of the trends and layers of society. Well worth reading.
