    8. Another great Thomas Black story With Seattle as the backdrop, Black investigates an apparent suicide and deals with his own regrets about his behavior towards the victim As usual, Black knows his strengths and weaknesses and pushes just past his limits in his search for the truth An interesting and thought provoking read Recommend along with all the other books in this series and the Mac Fontana series.

    9. An entertaining mystery, irreverent and suspenseful This thirteenth book in the Thomas Black series perfectly captures the damp, cool atmosphere of the Pacific Northwest A good choice for that next transcontinental plane ride.
