I don't think these books set the world on fire, but they are good solid reads that keep you engaged and guessing to the end, and leave you feeling like the world and the people in it might be okay, in spite of the bad things that can happen.
This book has Charlie trying to find the wayward son of an old friend in New York, and falling honourably in love along the way. He finds out a lot about the missing man, more about himself, nearly gets both arrested and killed, but is really one step ahead of the NY police on the case all the time. A good read, with a sound mystery and characters you can take an interest in.
The book description by Amazon is more than sufficient and if I tell you that this is a mystery book about crime and one cool cop, this has to satisfy you. I mean, read the book, you'll see what it's about soon enough.
The book is packing, has niveau and good writing and if you liked other books by Stephen Dobyns, read'it. If you've never heard of Stephen Dobyns before, read it. But if you want an earlier version of "Boy in the Water" or "Church of Dead Girls" forget about it. ALthough all of his books are about crime the setting in Longshot is completely different to the two books mentioned above. The main character is a small town cop, maybe somehow eccentric that old fellow, who lives for wild west legends and uses stories about them to explain situations in his own life. But don't worry, this is no book about gunslingers of the ol' wild west, but about one modern gunslinger, an open-minded, caring guy, who is stubborn and sticks to his promises - a cop from Saratoga Springs.
