THE best mystery author working today, bar none. I love the fact that his Kenzie/Gennaro series is so gritty, and free of the romanticism that so often goes with private investigation - think of Sam Spade, THAT is romanticized. I love how the bad sections of Boston are able to become characters themselves. I love the realism of Patrick Kenzie; he's got real problems, and no dames with great gams are likely to ever come walking into his office sexily saying they suspect their husbands of cheating on them. Mystic River sucked, though.
