This is a fun series, even if I think our handsome hero Scotty is kind of a Mary Sue. I think it took Herren a few books to come into his own as a writer (this is the fourth of his books that I've read). Still, there's the pratfall a lot of amateur detective series fall into; what are the odds, really, that one character would encounter so many dead bodies? (Herren has written two series. One features an ex-cop private eye, and I can buy that he'd run into trouble periodically because he does a lot of work for suspicious characters. This book is from the other series, the main character of which is a party boy, basically. He works in a gym as a personal trainer. I've had the same problem with other detective series I've read; it's too much of a coincidence for these characters to keep walking into murder investigations.)
