Some books take a while to build up your interest. Some never get to that point. The last one I listened to, I had to give up on after a few hours - rare for me.
It was nice that this one was entertaining from start to finish. Joe Barrett was a new refreshing voice for me - you can get tired of hearing the same great voice over so many adventures by different authors.
I enjoyed the action, mystery, political subtext, and the ending. I can't figure out why this book is only showing as a 3.8. The ending may have something to do with it. Good doesn't always triumph over evil - but can sometimes do just enough to keep a little of it at bay.
This is a good introduction to the colorful, imperfect detective. Ray Dudgeon and the backdrop of Chicago makes this a ripping good yarn.

Any additional comments?
Chercover is fresh and original. The crime novel seems to have a formula that you see over in over in most books, but Chercover has taken a different approach to make the protagonist real. And having lived in Chicago for a number of years, I agree with the way he portrays this great city, and bemoans the loss of some of its gritty character.
