I thought it was not bad, pretty good really, but not as good as I'd been hoping. I'd only read THE WRONG CASE and THE LAST GOOD KISS by Crumley before, and there are grotesque characters in those, but they seemed natural, not forced. In this book I thought he was reaching a little. And I didn't think it had the emotional depth his earlier works had. Still, better and more original than most of what gets published these days.
