Crisp, witty and quite dark. This third novel in the Benjamin Justice series opens with Ben quietly celebrating his 40th birthday, getting a professional break witting for tv and being set up for a blind date. First person narrative that brings you along Ben's journey into trying to choose between what's bad for him and what's right. This book has more violence than the others and is more graphic in the description of this violence. Still it's a fast paced, tightly written mystery with a dark twist. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
