This review is from: Kiss Her Goodbye (Paperback)
Fast paced crime noir novel that I found addictively easy to read. I think the book's strength is that all the main characters (especially Cooper and Joe Hope) are very compelling. His baddies have redeemable qualities (Cooper is a doting father) whilst his heroes tend to be flawed (Joe isn't exactly a model citizen). The plot develops nicely, leading to a tension (and violence)filled denouement. Possibly a slight downside is that when the novel comes to an end, it almost feels like it's ended too soon, and I wanted to know what was going to happen next. But maybe Guthrie's next book will answer that particular question?
