Review quote

"Quotable, sparkling dialogue guarantees that this mix of crime novel and sociological study will appeal beyond the genre. A perfect choice for crime readers who like some Ellroy in their Doyle and who appreciate long stretches of breath-snatching suspense without the slightest hint of a shootout or explosion." -- Booklist "Booklist"show more
