Great book. Most avid readers,are always looking for a new author to follow. Well here he is. Why his books are not featured in the windows of B&N is beyond me. Good main character, someone you can relate to, believe in and want to follow where he goes. I am particularly enamored with the dry wit and sarcasm the character shows. Always a winner. The plot covers murders present and past, as well as story lines carefully crafted both past and present, with just enough 'real' history thrown in to make you go hmm. Very interesting story development riding these parallel story lines. Here's all you need to know, it's a book, that when complete, you are looking for the next installment. Get the book, but be prepared to blow a Saturday, or a Sunday, or a couple 3 late nights, because you will want to finish.
