The Chicago Way -- A Very Good Mystery Debut With The Potential To Be The Start Of An Excellent Series!,
This review is from: The Chicago Way (Hardcover)
With his first book, Michael Harvey has written a fast-paced, stylish murder mystery featuring a tough-talking Irish cop turned private investigator that does for the city of Chicago what Elmore Leonard did for Detroit, Raymond Chandler did for Los Angeles and Robert B. Parker does for Boston. Harvey's main character, while not the most original character in the genre, has the potential to "carry" a successful series a la Harry Bosch, Spenser, Matthew Scudder, etc. If you are in the mood for a book that offers first-rate suspense and is fueled with energy, wit and the gritty atmosphere of a major city, The Chicago Way is a book I'd recommend highly. With his "first swing of the bat," Harvey shows that he has the potential to be a leading "hitter" in the mystery series category.
