Why do private investigator books so often use the formula where the woman with which the detective sleeps is the murderer. I have to say that this spoiled this volume for me, and I am not sure that I will continue with the series. This was series I wanted to like with the PI having been a reporter who did jail time for not revealing a source, and I liked his personality. ( )
