Yeah, I don’t know what all the fuss is about. Admittedly, I don’t read much in this genre and picked it up mainly because it’s set in Detroit.
It’s in extremely short sections following the story as it unfolds among 5 or 6 different characters — I don’t even remember and I don’t care. The author weaves the different components together well, and a couple of the characters are as appealing/unappealing, as they need to be. There’s a supertough detective, you see, who’s on this crazy homicide case, the details of which I shall not share in case you read it, but which are sufficiently insane to be interesting. Serial killer! Smart but troubled and undersupervised teenaged daughter! Formerly homeless guy who’s heroic! Dumbass wannabe famous dude!
I just didn’t care. And there’s way too much emphasis on the various social media platforms and tech devices, including entire transcripts of text “conversations” which will just make this book seem dated in about a week.
Whatever. Maybe you’ll like it. It seems I’m in the minority.
