Mayoral aide John Vithous was bludgeoned to death while typing emails late in the night. His murder shocks Kansas City, and there is immense pressure on Burke and Thurber to solve the case - and fast.

A great murder mystery book that really makes you feel like the characters are real people. I think you will enjoy this one!

A great read that combines a police procedural with political intrigue. It was refreshing to read a mystery set outside of the usual locations. I also liked the lead detective, Burke, who is not the cliched hard-drinking cynical detective. Definitely worth the money!

This book was about 123 pages. The book was fast moving and the characters believable. Would highly recommend this book.

I read a lot of mysteries and I found this one a good read. It is not too long and is the ideal book for reading on   planes or when you have a limited amount of time. It is fast moving and has a great finish.I thought the editing was fine, perhaps it has been redone.

While I did not feel it was the best book I have ever read, the story moved along quickly.  However, in my Nook version, there were pages  missing and some of the proof reader's notes appeared on one of the pages.   There are 117 pages to this story, so it is fast reading.  Good ending.

I stopped reading after the first few pages. The lack of proper editing was just too annoying.
