The Edgar award winning story of the search for a very public serial killer during a Chicago heat wave. An atmospheric, authentic, sad and funny page-turner. This is the way the "City that Works" really works. Having lived in Chicago all my life, the characters are so real they could be (and maybe were modeled on) my friends and neighbors. ( )
