The partners are given two must-solve cold cases—thirty-seven and thirty-four year-old murders—that are missing official documents and crucial evidence. Plus, it seems that very little effort was made to investigate the deaths. The storyline is complex with numerous subplots that involve secondary characters—most well-drawn with different idiosyncrasies, so police procedural fans can eliminate suspects as new murders are committed. The twists and revelations that come on the heels of the murders (and attempted murders) keep the book moving at a brisk pace.
As mentioned earlier, as the book progresses, Murphy and Blanchard’s continual banter began to annoy. “Bite me,” Murphy says again and again, whilst Blanchard has a fun with “dick” words. What’s worse are problems with details: 1) a very specifically described Camaro becomes a Buick; 2) missing evidence—a bloody tire iron and an package of broken beer bottles—are found hidden in a police property room, BUT are (later) found in an U-Haul storage unit; and 3) storage units, storage lockers and storage bins are not the same things. I’m a police procedural aficionado, so I am picky.
3 stars because overall, this is a decent read. Plus I’m willing to try another book by Rick Reed.
