A lovely lot of reading, but I especially want to agree with The
Cleanup, which is so different. I have to point out that the cop in the
story is not getting along well with his department and has been
assigned to guard a supermarket, which is considered degrading, and
having nothing much to do on the job, he begins worrying that a cashier
is in a battering relationship. This isn't a police procedural, at least
not a standard one.
And I didn't know Sean Doolittle was a listmate. Joy
