Shopping for a new series to sink into. Found this. Very male with a side of daddy issues. Very 90s, featuring Depeche Mode as new music. I kind of liked it, but kind of had early 90s PTSD from it. I won't make judgment on the author, but I will say that the discussion on race and crime has really evolved but also has really stagnated in the last 20 years. 50/50 on whether I will try the next one in the series.
