It just now occurred to me that this is mostly a sort of ghoulish retelling of The Thin Man.

Nice to read a mystery that's unravelled enough that I'm left wondering how it appears to have been solved halfway into the book. Look forward to reading more of Hayder's books.

Although this is listed as #2 in the Jack Caffery series, I feel it is a really good stand alone novel. There was nothing in it, at any point, that had me thinking maybe I should've read the first book. Be warned though this book looks at the seedy underbelly of things that, some people would rather pretend doesn't exist. Oh, and then there's the dog...

I particularly enjoyed the way the book was written; it was well paced and reflected that slow, methodical movement police investigations have. It didn't try to make them out as super-heroes, instead showing that they are people like us, warts and all.

Even though I enjoyed this book, I'm not certain if I will read anymore of this Author's work.
