Lowly apprentice detective R.D. Clarke, so of Private Detective Jerry Clarke is finally coming of age. R.D. finds himself working on a serial Murder case, trying to help his boyhood friend, Quentin, to find who killed his former girl friend (Quentin has been carrying the torch for Rachel for over nine years and had been celibate to avoid another traumatic episode). R.D. has grown in many ways. Since his near death in the previous story, he no longer sleeps more than a couple of hours at night, being awakened by a vision of being shot in the head and instead of seeing the light, seeing only blackness. His step father diagnosis is traumatic stress syndrome. Now his father and cousin, Eddie (the policeman) were starting to acknowledge him with some respect and his father had stopped his continual berating. He was actually working his own cases (after the normal office routine that was still his duty). His insight and intuition were turning up fruitful results and he was working in tandem with his father solving the routine agency cases (giving R.D. a learning opportunity and his father some relief from the mundane). While R.D. still has some self confidence issues and frequently falls into emulating a TV detective for insight into how to enter a crime scene or interrogate a witness, he is developing skills to call his own. Certainly, his inability to be the "Hard Boiled" detective depicted in the books and magazines isn't keeping him from solving his share of cases. The feet of clay only adds to his endearing qualities and makes him one of our own. Sometimes it is good to find people that have to wait in queue and have foibles and ethics and misplaced trust and tendency to fall in love with "A Pretty Face". Just a good old Joe detective on the move! A story to enjoy. ( )
