Now, with his fellow officers, Rayford is ready for whatever Rocksburg throws his way, even if it means patrolling the river flats, where things can get deadly pretty quickly.

My favorite mystery writer, sage about local politics and the human condition.

Really good dialogue, better than most (but beware salty language). I laughed through much of it, even though there were very serious & thoughtful ideas throughout it. A different kind of mystery book, spoken through the eyes of weary police officers trying to do their job in a world full of nutbars & control freaks. Gives the reader some understanding of the frustration of the job.
