“Interface: the common boundary between two systems.”

“In this underbelly San Francisco they get rolled, or get ripped off, or get a dose of, or maybe even get unlucky and so get dead.”
“Therefore, this alternate San Francisco to the city where the little cable cars reach halfway to the stars is also the cops’ San Francisco.”

I loved Docker! He was like a dark, dark version of Jack Reacher, and an even crazier Anton Chigurh! The story itself, set in San Francisco as it is, feels like a dark version of a Dashiell Hammett novel, and the city itself reads like a dark version of The City! All positives for me! I really enjoyed this book, and I loved the twist at the end! Bravo!… (mais)

This book required a lot more suspension of disbelief than I usually can muster. It's not that the general events were so improbable, it's the omniscience of Sam Spade that got my eyes to rolling. Once I accepted that it would be "that type" of book, the story became really very enjoyable.
