I'm glad I did. This was a nice little action-packed mystery based on rock-n-roll and drugs.
What I didn't know when I picked it up was that it was part of a series. I think there were a couple of call-backs to character-development things that I missed, but for the most part this is a pretty self-contained book that is a fine way to waste an afternoon.
There are skinheads looking for the guitar and DEA agents questioning Dex. When the guitar mysteriously shows up, that isn't the end of the case either. Things heat up and all is resolved as the mystery is uncovered.
It's a good mystery story by Greg Rucka, who also includes an essay on private eyes and how they have influenced him. The art by Matthew Southworth is good and shows the seamier side of Portland. Especially cool are the iconic train station and the Burnside Bridge which feature in the story. Dex is a capable detective that can hold her own amongst any other fictional detectives I've read. I'd like to read more stories featuring her.
