"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Omer does a wonderful job of creating a cop character that you want to understand and spend time with. Mitchell Lonnie is empathetic and compassionate, but also jaded and with a wry sense of humor. He's an interesting mix, and that keeps him fresh and compelling throughout the book.
There are also some really cool secondary characters, primarily Rabbi Friedman, who add color and texture to the story without looking like a line-up of quirky characters designed to do that and only that.
The crime and ensuing investigation are compelling, there's just enough dark humor for someone who likes a little funny with their grittiness, and the dialogue is spot on. I'm really looking forward to the second book.
The plot and characters are what you'd expect in terms of suspense/thriller stuff, with the police procedural angle that I just love, but what's unusual is that the story doesn't focus exclusively on a single detective. Very much an ensemble cast, which I think will open up a lot of awesome possibilities for future books in the series. The author handles shifts from omniscient to third-person point of view very deftly, and, best of all? There are some seriously funny moments in here to offset the sometimes grim subject matter.
All in all, just a tremendously good book. I've already pre-ordered book 2.
