A live-in security guard at a storage facility in his tiny Texas hometown, disgraced homicide detective Nicholas Bruiseman is a pariah. But then former cheerleader-type Gwen asks him for some unlicensed protection, which leads to a lot of trouble and a dead body. VERDICT The plot is Big Sleep-complicated, the atmosphere edgy, and the narration intriguingly second person. For readers of literary fiction and mystery fans willing to take a dare.
