I would have given this four stars because it was entertaining enough I cut one off because rather too many of the characters sounded alike in their half assed jokey way Amusing when one person does it but variety is the spice of a story The intention to give a distinctive flavour to the Sam North collection was good but from a dialogue p.o.v there wasthan one Sam.The only other cavil was the descriptions seemed to come in clumps For example, in the first page or two Charlie was dres I would have given this four stars because it was entertaining enough I cut one off because rather too many of the characters sounded alike in their half assed jokey way Amusing when one person does it but variety is the spice of a story The intention to give a distinctive flavour to the Sam North collection was good but from a dialogue p.o.v there wasthan one Sam.The only other cavil was the descriptions seemed to come in clumps For example, in the first page or two Charlie was dressed in his summer un

Well plotted and developed In reading this I almost felt like I was part of the investigation The wise cracking and attitude shown by the protagonists made me think of cop humor as I saw it in real life The characters were believable as was the plot Well done I liked the film noir, hard boiled detective feeling to this story I also loved the setting NYC , and I work in tv news so there s that too I was incredibly frustrated at times because the main character is so dense However the dialog and action were enough to keep me interested in reading. I liked Sam s persistence to get the truth in the face of jeopardizing his job and putting himself in danger The plot was somewhat predictable but with enough surprises thrown in to keep it interesting Fast paced.
