Reed Fergurson and his various friends are so well written that they feel like friends. Dewey Webb, a noir character from post WW2, didn't seem to be the sort of hero who would appeal to modern readers.
I was wrong!
The world of Mr. Webb - lacking the Internet, relying on pay phones, demanding brain power instead of computers - is straight out of a black and white Bogie film. Dames in trouble, shady characters, the carefully researched clothing and scenes, Ms. Pawlish has the era down flat.
I see other reviewers have given the plots away, so all I can add is an apology for doubting.
This mystery is new, but it is written as they were in the golden age, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This was the first book I read from this author, but my next step is to get the rest of her mysteries. I am grateful to have a new source for great mystery writing. I am also pleased to find an author who is meticulous in her copyediting. I have a journalism background, and mistakes in copyediting grate on me. I didn't find one mistake through this whole book. It seems to have been a labor of love in more than one way.
A good detective with a tough edge, as well as family , a client that then develops into a more complicated plot, and 4 bad guys.
It doesn't get any better for this genre.
