Chicagoan Sean Chercover has been a private eye in New Orleans and Chicago- hopefully not facing the the same kind of rough treatment that his protagonist Ray Dudgeon faces! (And also not the same kind of tumultuous love life that Ray experiences.)
I thought I’d never read a Chercover book, and my friend Addy strongly recommended him, so I read Big City, Bad Blood. It turned out I had already read it, but even on a second go-round, it was a great read.
Now I’ve read Trigger City. Another great read.
But BCBB came out in 2008. TC came out in 2009. 2010 passed – no Chercover book! 2011 is here… fingers crossed for a new Ray Dudgeon book.
