Raggedy Man by Clyde Curley

Detectives Matthew Toussaint and Missy Owens search through the damp chill of a Portland February morning for clues about the death of a young drifter, found under one of the city’s many bridges. The victim: Ben Foeller, the errant younger son of Portland’s premier dynastic family. With the help of Toussaint’s bookstore-owning brother, Parker, the detectives wade through multiple clues to narrow down their river of suspects: a drug dealer, an East Coast art collector, a political radical, a used car salesman, and members of Foeller’s own family.

This is probably the beset mystery I've ever read.   Clyde Curly is a master of bringing in diverse themes and weaving them together.  I enjoyed the fact that it was set in Portland and that I saw lots of familiar sites mentioned.  However, it would have been a great book anyway.  I don't want to disclose any of the plot other than to say that the two detectives find a body in an open area in Portland.  Anything else would take away from the story and your enjoyment of it.
