Synopsis: A new PI joins an eminent list, bursting with humor, pugnacity, and a leaky moral code, bent on one-upping San Francisco’s finest while wooing a prosecutor-turned-lover. A talented investigator, Beaupre muddles through his own hubris and missteps, leaving a trail of bodies and recrimination. Booted from the police force—for knocking a skinhead comatose and allegedly battering a girlfriend—he radiates confidence spiked with arrogance. Hired to find the killer in a moldy double murder, he sniffs out a drug trail, misreads a string of homicides, and not until he and a computer hacker sidekick track down a fugitive in Asia does the scope of a vast criminal conspiracy reveal itself.

Review: I had to DNF this book at around 32%. The book is good, but around that point the writing started to get stale for me and the book was too predictable up to that point. The book is also well paced and has decent character development, but it was just too predictable for me and I didn’t really feel any interest to read the book after that point.

Verdict: It’s good, just not for me.
