This is the first book of the McNally series I have read, and I have to admit, I did not care for it. It is well written and well crafted, the charcters stay true to themselves, and the mystery is well thought out and complex, and follows logically.
In all honestly, I just did not like the main character much, as a person. He was not a detective that I wanted to hang out with, for the time it took me to finish the book. I did not enjoy his company.
The writing is done in first person by the P.I. He says of himself, 'You may think me a whimp', and 'You may think I have the muscle tone of linguine', and other simular statements. The authors wit is quite pleasent. But, I'm afraid, his statements are true. When I want to spend my reading time in the company of a male P.I., I am afraid that Spencer is my model, and this rich flabby mama's boy falls far short.

"Sanders has a remarkable touch. Blending crime and romance, he is a master at building suspense, with his depth of character a big part of the formula. He also has the wit to pull it all together."
