    Not very believable

    I really wanted to like this mystery, the first in Greg Herren's "Murder in ..." series. The writing is enjoyable, but several elements of the plot were difficult to swallow. The main character, a private detective and former police officer does some incredibly stupid things: breaking & entering to look for clues without backup, confronting the murderer, also without any backup. Doesn't he know that the sleuth ALWAYS has the police waiting in the wings when the murderer is revealed? He is also unbelievably lucky in surviving the near death experiences caused by his blunders. When reading science fiction or fantasy I'm willing to suspend my unbelief, but not when reading a realistic mystery.
