really liked it

This book by retired LA Sheriff homicide investigator Danny R. Smith is a page-turner and a hoot to read. It's a buddy book about two hard-drinking, tough-guy detectives, who love one another, who are obsessive about solving the crime, whether it's a rich lady in Malibu or a prostitute in Lynwood. They love their job, they love each other in a macho sort of way, and they even love the women in their lives.
Much of the book is about the relationship between the two - nicknamed Dickie and Floyd - the fights with the cover-their-ass bureaucrats for whom they work, the attempts to do what they think best despite interference from their superiors. It's a kind of cross between "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "Freebie and the Bean."
It's a page-turner and a lot of fun to read. My only real criticism is that by the end of the book, you get a little weary of the cute repartee between the two, and the fact that I felt the solution to the crime was a bit weak.
But mostly, it was one of those book that hook you and keep you reading late into the night.
