    1. Based on the main characters and general location, I could not help but compare this to the Robert Tanenbaum series featuring Assistant District Attorney Butch Karp and his saucy private detective wife Marlene Ciampi. Sadly, it did not compare, in my opinion. The characters were not as well developed, and the story line was a little too simple for my tastes. It was ok, and the plot twist was an interesting concept, but it rang a little hollow.

    2. I like a lot of the Michael Jahn books because of the settings in NYC and Brooklyn but I also liked the character. This is one of the later books. His character has changed, all of the characters were stereotyped and the end of the story left you scratching you head along the novel moved along and there were a lots of suspects and hidden stories. I prefer his earlier work.

    3. Jahn is a Brooklynite through and through, and showcases the changing face of Coney Island in another Bill Donovan mystery. Laced with great dialogue, great locations and memorable characters, this mystery left me guessing right to the end. Kudos!
