Some Dead Genius

Some Dead Genius - Lenny Kleinfeld I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. The book came with a lovely inscription from the author. Thank you very much!

This book was a delightful R rated romp through Chicago - the police, the FBI, the art scene, the mob, the local government... (R for language and violence). It was a lot of fun and I look forward to reading the first book and the next one!
