A murder investigation unfolds inside Detroit's tightknit Greek community.....
After a series of well-deployed plot twists, Jill [Zannos] zeroes in on theculprit. Jenkins complicates and expands the domestic and detectinghalves of the plot with a deft, sure touch, and her portrayal ofGretchen Parker's final day is unflinchingly stark. Jenkins alsoexpertly captures the exotic sights, sounds, and smells (oregano, mint,garlic, feta, olive oil, tomato, etc.) of the neighborhood.
An effective, memorable police-procedural whodunit.
The Greeks of Beaubien Street boldly deconstructs
