A word of caution dear reader: Be careful when you turn the page. Punches are thrown and bullets fly. Don't forget to duck.
In addition, Jack is very close to Humphrey Bogart and to Sam Spade. He watches Bogie's movies, and at one point it says "He also knew he would recover. Not tonight. Not tomorrow. But he could already feel his body fighting to regain itself." Who can forget those famous lines from Casablanca? Jack had also bought a weapon - "a leather-wrapped sap, popular in the 20, and 30s, as memorabilia from Sam Spade's era". He even imagines how Dashiell Hammett (Sam Spade's creator) might have written the description of a character's office. And then the description follows, and it is very close to Dashiell Hammett's style. Great subtle touches!
Nora Burke is back, as Jack's clever and perky partner. Rachel Johnstone is not, and her absence gives us a crucial insight into Jack, as he mourns her. Around him there are other remarkable characters, especially Max Logan, the Irish/Scottish retired cop who starts working for Jack. The three make a great team, and we hope to see them again soon.
The resolution is unexpected and admirably developed. However, if you read the Prologue carefully, some of the answers lie there - a very clever twist!Read more ›
“She reached inside her blouse to reposition a bra strap …”
“…crossed her arms, pushing her black bra and its mounded contents into sight…”
“…leaned in, her breasts and white bra showing…”
“… and more active breasts than Lauren Bacall…”
“…and crossed her arms, elevating her cleavage…”
Nora is quite developed, it seems, and likes to cross her arms a lot. She also owns many different bras. I’ve heard of breastworks but I thought that term referred only to military fortifications. It appears that it can also refer to bad novels. I’ve been known to dump on female mystery writers who spend half the book describing their heroine’s outfits. Bishop does the same thing with the undergarments … and their mounded contents. As a retired FBI agent, I can attest that Bishop knows zero about blackmail or law enforcement.

this story was okay but I did not find the characters sympathetic.
I would like to have seen the book end differently.
It has been awhile since I read this book, so I don't think it would be fair to give it a review. However, it was a good mystery and I liked the surprise ending.Published 1 month ago by Donna Burger
