Funk Rating: 8.5 out of 10
Another one of my "retro" reads, but this one only goes back to 1989. This is almost a Reacher novel, without the violence. Ex-cop, now a PI, gets a case that he just can't stop working on... An odd coincidence and everything comes together.
Very well written in a "draws you in and you're not sure why" kind of way. Powerful characters, great writing, clever plot twists, and a whodoneit that you could have seen a mile away if you were paying careful attention. Almost like an Encylopedia Brown kind of way :)
I'd definitely put this on the reading list and I'll be looking for some more Block...
