We got the idea early the detective was black. I don't know why the author felt he needed to harp on it. Or why if he was harping on it, he didn't hit it harder. I thought the whole "I'm black, poor me" was pretty weak. And after the crime was solved there was so much filler used to extend the book.
Still, the crime itself was unique and well presented, along with the steps taken to solve the crime. Overall, I could recommend the book to anyone that wants an uncomplicated read. No obvious grammar or spelling mistakes which often plague Kindle books.
Quite aside from the murder mystery, one can't help but come away with an enormously better understanding of the often disheartening plight of many an everyday citizen of the city. The insight regarding the nation's capitol comes from an entirely different direction than one might expect. It really points up at least a good part of the "why" of some of the antipathy in the minds and hearts of the majority of the citizens regarding their attitudes towards those who work in the city, but rush off to the suburbs every evening.
The effective duality of the book, wherein the murder investigation, mostly with grim determination, plods right along, while at the same time, on a parallel path, a wealth of really clarifying insight about the area and the people who live there is offered up for the reader to chew on.
Very nicely done, and without question worth five stars.
Joe Flood,in addition to being publishd in the Washington Post and literary journals,is an award-winning photographer. For over 20 years he has captured the beauty and the grime with film of the Washington area. Now he captures it in the written word with his first novel.
It is of course a whodunit which is my favorite genre. I enjoyed reading and guessing and didn't even mind being wrong,which I was,about the murderer. It was also a "howdunit" with some good research on the author's part.
The victim, Bob Fundwell, was so despicable one wonders if there's such a thing as justifiable murder.
There was of course the mandatory touching love lost and comforting love found which was nicely woven into the story.
