it was amazing
bookshelves: detectives

Unputdownable - incredible pace, crackling dialogue, sparing yet vivid language. My only complaint is that the detective duo, Grave Digger and Coffin Ed, are little more than ciphers next to the colourful cast of murderers, robbers and whores, and it's hard to feel much for them.
