Though I don't usually go for deep South detective stories, I saw this on a list of best mystery novels & tried it. It was very, very good. Also poetic in an earthy way. The street talk is pretty exotic, so dialogue reads almost like a foreign language & takes a while to sink in.

Boring, boring - pages filled with descriptions. The plot was weak and so were the characters. I completed the book ...finally. Should have dropped it by page 50.
