Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Insurance agent Henry Jamison was doing fine in post-World War II Seattle. Too bad someone had to chop his head off with a rusty samurai sword. But at least his office was on the same floor as private investigator Jake Rossiter, whose Gal Friday, Miss Jenkins, discovered the body. Determined to find his neighbor's killer, Rossiter must dodge his archenemy, crooked cop Harvey Blevens, who heads the police investigation. Blevens is focused on the Hashimotos, but Jake suspects the Japanese family may be convenient scapegoats. Colbert's first Rossiter caper, Rat City (2001), was nominated for a Shamus. The second builds on the late 1940s noir atmosphere of corruption, profiteering, and ambition. Rossiter, the cynical realist, does his best to navigate these murky waters with wisecracks, quick fists, and a Chandlerian determination to impose his moral vision on the world. Colbert populates Rossiter's world with a quirky melange of secondary characters, led by the always unpredictable Miss Jenkins. Readers who enjoy Max Allan Collins' Nate Heller mysteries will find a kindred soul in Colbert and Rossiter. Wes Lukowsky
