really liked it
Read in July, 2012

The crimes in The Abent One might be brutal and gruesome but the sarcasm and humor exhibited when Carl and his cohorts interact more than make up for it. Once again Carl ignores his superiors to explore a 20 year old case to which someone confessed. The problem is Carl doesn’t think he was the only one guilty and doesn’t think the crime he confessed to was his only crime. Department Q has another new quirky and flawed assistant in Rose, and she along with Assad and Carl make the perfect team, even if Carl hasn’t yet figured that out.

I loved the interaction between Carl and Assad and his new assistant Rose. And, Carl's never ending attempts to connect with his therapist romantically.
