This was an enthralling mystery that zipped along at a brisk pace and kept me guessing until the end, although I did start to put things together about halfway through. I liked the narrator a lot, and really liked a couple other characters too - so much that I was upset by some events that occurred at the end of the book. The book is like a film noir, but set in Detroit in 1910, which was right up my alley, as I love that period in history. Some quick research shows that this is the now the first book in a series - so I will definitely have to read the next books to see what happens next. A lucky Borders Last Days sale find, and recommended.
