This is a Lucas Davenport novel where he is trying to solve a brutal murder in Minnesota and also find the meth head that robbed him one morning when he was out jogging. There was a cute joke in the book.

Mary Sue, Brenda Sue and Linda Sue were sitting on their front porch in Georgia, on a hot afternoon, drinking lemon drops with extra vodka. After a while Mary Sue said, "When I had my first baby, my husband gave me a brand-new Cadillac rag-top automobile."
Brenda Sue said, "What a marvelous, generous man he is."
Linda Sue said, "Well, ain't that nice?"

They all drank some more lemon drops, with a little extra vodka, and then Brenda Sue said, When I had my first baby, my husband gave me a brand new split-level house, with central air."
Mary Sue said, "That's such a magnificent gesture. You must've been so proud."
Linda Sue said, "Well, ain't that nice?"

They sat and had a few more lemon drops, with extra vodka and Mary Sue asked Linda Sue, "What did your husband get you after you had your first baby?"
Linda Sue said, "When I had my first baby my husband sent me to Switzerland to charm school."
Mary Sue asked, "Charm school? Did you find that helpful?"
Linda Sue said, "Ever so much. I use to just say 'Fuck you!' Now I say, 'Well, ain't that nice?' "
Even with the joke it was just a barely an average read. 2.5 out of 5.
