Great info on history of DC in a great murder mystery
Really enjoyed this book. Much of it took place in my neighborhood of SW DC. The research about the neighborhoods was really great. School names, rib joints, old dance clubs, all sorts of details right in place. I learned some of the backstory of DC that is not well-covered in history books. Ever heard of "red summer?"
Very insightful about class distinctions among African-Americans in DC and elsewhere and about how class, wealth and political connections affect whether a murder is a back (or no page ) story or a front page above-the-fold epic. Deals also with the effect of the ever-encroaching gentrification in this town. I'm typically not a murder mystery fan, but this is about urban sociology.
Mr. Tucker is very, very good. I read his first book in this, series, the Ways of the Dead. Hope "Sully" will be back real soon.
I also enjoyed the reader. This was my first audio book & I stayed up past 3am to listen to the end of it. The only problem for me is that the audiobook slowed my old iPad to a crawl. Next 1 I buy will have more storage.
