Like Ian Rankin?
Somewhere I thought I read a review that likened this book to Ian Rankin's Rebus series. Maybe not, but that's why I chose it.
Like Rebus, Elder has a daughter who was criminally traumatized. He has been around a long time. But, and this is key, Elder lacks Rebus' sense of humor.
This book is entirely humorless. It plods along. It's bad guys are very creepy and awful. One dimensional. I gave the book two stars simply because it wasn't horrible. But I did fast forward through parts of it and easily followed the story. I would never compare this style of writing with Rankin's.
