I have to say, I loved the insider's look into Detroit, a city I knew almost nothing about before reading this, other than what I've seen in the news. The novel and its characters really convey the feel of the city itself, which in many ways is the real main character of the book, with the variety of colorful characters displaying as types to illuminate the culture and its tensions. Given everything that is happening in Detroit right now, I found this to be really timely, in that for me it really personalized some of the grief behind what has happened to this once great city, (which used to be compared to Paris, I found out - which kind of blew my mind, frankly!), as well as the long history of ethnic and racial tensions and the uniqueness of the world its locals inhabit.Read more ›
However, I think in a few instances, the author could have thought through some of the dialog a little better and used language that the characters would actually use. Nonetheless, I believe that Motor City Murder could be the first on Megan Clare Johnson's list of successes in this series. I'll be watching for the next installment.
