If you like big cities, the 1940's, tough guys, tough cops, rich women, a new twist at every turn, then read this book. A very exciting book where you think you've figured out the story until Steve Monroe sends you down a new path or brings in a new character adding another dimension to the story. An enjoyable book. Thanks to HH for recommending it to me.

Monroe does an excellent job of taking the reader back to 1946 Chicago and from the opening scene he puts the reader in the action as the main character a Chicago cop(Gus) kills another man in a whore house. Gus immediately is suspended from the force,but a private citizen hires him to find a well known kidnapped black man. The action never stops and Monroe does and excellent job of explaining 'policy' to the reader. He also makes the Chicago politics between the police, the Lake Forest aristocrat, and the policy players very believable. Excellent dialogue. Definite page turner. He does an excellent job of tying all the pieces together but not too simplistically.
