Holland Taylor lost his wife and daughter to a drunken driver. Soon after that man is released from prison, he is murdered and Holland is a suspect. He is soon cleared, but told to figure out who did it by his former partner. Along the way, there are political candidates, bribery, cheating at poker games and unrequited love. As more bodies pile up it becomes unclear whether the killings are linked or randomly coincidental.
A likeable enough character, and an easy enough read, but it felt a little like getting dumped in the middle of the story at times. That's not a completely bad thing, it's was just at times a little confusing. All was explained, so perhaps that is to throw the reader off. Along the way, there are some interesting and unexpected twists and turns to the story.
Recommended for a quick bit of hard boiled mystery action.
