All in shades of grey. Almost 4 stars. The plot is important but the conclusion of the tale isn't. There are bad guys, worst bad guys and guys that are bad because of their jobs or their moral compass. Brandsetter's live is in limbo: his father is slowly dying, his relationship with Doug has ended and both are in the process of moving on but still clinging to what might have been if only. The case of the murderer Police Chief only accentuate the holes in Dave's life. No sleep, no love, soon no father, no murderer, not even the haven of a young lover to make things better. I liked it. Noir with a slight touch of spleen.
