Solving the murder of Victor Bollings is considered a slam dunk by Southampton Town Police, but not by Sam Acquillo. This eighth entry is a stellar addition to an assured series, with Acquillo more philosophical than ever as he senses his own mortality.
Tango Down is a stellar offering that balances the personal, the professional, and the political; hot-button issues make for page-turning suspense when rendered by such capable hands.
