department and Balzic has more time for his family and simple police matters such as parking tickets. Reading this detective novel was not always easy due to the writers vulgar street language associated with the region around Pennsylvania. However it made the book seem more real so that is was believable. while The author gives a deep description of the main character, which I think sometimes made it seem to long till he came to the point where he actually said what he wanted to say. Even though the book is with 174 pages considerably short it took me forever to read it since it was not as gripping as the back of the book promised. If I would have read the last 10 pages I could have saved my self a lot of time while I did not enjoy reading this book.
