I was expecting this to be more lighthearted than it was, but in the end, that's okay. This dark, gritty tale of a Jewish cop in Austin, Texas, breathes with a glimpse of our future that's all too possible. At the same time, it's one of the most convoluted mysteries I've ever encountered, yet it all makes perfect sense (once you're able to keep all the characters straight). Add in some very intriguing character development and I'm not sure why this series -- there are now four of them -- hasn't gotten wider attention. It certainly deserves it.

I really liked this book. A dark and different cop book. I'll definitely be reading more from this author.

A well thought out and wildly plotted first book. I am looking forward to grabbing the rest of these off my bookshelf and see where the author takes his character, Dan Reles (rhymes with Trellis).
It's Austin in the late 1980's. Crack as spread everywhere, the city is recovering from the last oil boom and poised to grow again.
Reles goes out on a call and discovers a corpse. Well err... not quite all of it. And so begins the wild ride to search for the killer of Dirty Sally. It will take you places that will make you wish you didn't know as much as you did about how Reles tracks the trail of the killer.

Well done . Grisly too. But worthy if you like your homicide detectives well liquored up, troubled and girl crazy...

My first by this author. Loved it! Lots going on but Michael Simon does such a great job with the details that you're never lost.
