I was drawn to this book because the setting is my hometown, however, I was skeptical since the author is not familiar to me. This turned out to be a very clever mystery with rich characters. I really liked this pair of detectives, quite humorous in some dark moments. The story keeps you guessing and is very well woven. I did enjoy the references and settings of places I have known all my life, but I would have thoroughly enjoyed this book anyway-that was just a bonus for me.
