    The Detective is a good story, just not written very well There were too many tag lines i e He said, she said Action words would have moved the story along at a quicker pace There was also head hopping going on throughout the book Several times I had to go back a reread a section because I was inside a different characters head in the same paragraph The writer may have been trying to use omniscient voice, but it just confused me I thought the plot was a good one Five people are found sh The Detective is a good story, just not written very well There were too many tag lines i e He said, she said Action words would have moved the story along at a quicker pace There was also head hopping going on throughout the book Several times I had to go back a reread a section because I was inside a different characters head in the same paragraph The writer may have been trying to use omniscient voice, but it just confused me I thought the plot was a good one Five people are found shot near a subway in Chicago David Beckman who is new to the homicide division is the antagonist He s young, vibrant, a bit cocky, but is all about finding the killer His partner, detective Tom Regan, is the senior detective on the case and regarded as the best detective on the force I thought the relationship between these two was a little cliche at first, but I thought they worked well together as the story unfolded The Detective has some great characters, those you live and those you live to hate If not for all the tag lines and head hopping I would have given this book 5 stars

    I really enjoyed this book something about the noir detective, but this is placed in Chicago in the not too distant past My DH watches Streets of San Franciso on ME TV and this was like a really good episodeJ

    Various reviews of this book suggested that the history and sociology aspects of it might be distracting and annoying I didn t find that to be so, but I do think Hunt overemphasized the idea of tribe Or rather the use of the term tribe But it was a good read I read it in one sitting.
