This is the story of a PI who opens his story with a client who is trying to compel Sam to take a case (at gunpoint). So, opening grabs one right away with a hook into the tale that is paced so well you are finished before you realize it. It IS a classic PI mystery we often read. But, the tale is not the worse for such. The writer has a great dialogue ability and he sustains it throughout with all his characters. In fact, I felt his dialogue fleshed his characters better than mere descriptive bits could have (or did). The only character I felt was a bit overdone was Little Jimmy - though, I felt it was intentional on author's part.
The case is to find a missing girl among the street life of prostitution, drugs and mafia type bullies. The events that transpire are told in witty and wry humor that allowed pacing to blend seamlessly from chapter to chapter and character to character.
Based on ending, I suspect this is to be a series type character or characters. That does not mean there was an unfinished ending - for that was not case. This is very much a stand alone book - regardless of future possibilities.
Few errors - but edited well.
This work is worth the buck fifty asking price and I recommend author. I will read more of his work.
