It took only 6 chapters of Blauner's tedious, superfluous prose and conspicuous product-placement shout-outs to drive me to the point of simply no longer caring about the story.
To me, it felt like a potentially interesting story in the hands of the wrong writer.
When a headless corpse is discovered floating in the waters, commuters soon discover she's a local who grew up with nearly everyone involved in the police investigation.
Like a cop who lives too much in his past and a best friend who doesn't realize harassment charges against the cop will bring out her own dirty laundry. Even the police chief knows the dead woman. Then there's his problem of suspecting the cop (who was passed over for the chief's job), who's also a friend, but trying to be impartial. The chief is the most sympathetic character. The other characters and their angst seem thrown in to fill up space and maybe muddy the waters.
The ending wrapped up loose ends but it left me dissatisfied. I won't say why since it'd be a spoiler. I will say that anyone who likes their mysteries dark will probably like this one.
