"Classic detective series"

By Sue Owen

Darling's portrayal of Detective Anderson is a total classic. The man is hard, street mean and an overall push over. He's out to save the world and you better just get out of the way. Reminds me of a Spade character from long ago. This is a collection of short stories which as you all know I try not to read. But they all center on the main character and read more like a novel with specific themes.

The stories are great mysteries all with surprises and very fast paced but none of them are alike. Anderson grows on the reader and the author's attempts at humor come off perfectly. For short stories the scenes are set well and there are no details left out that make you wonder what happened. No stone unturned, as it were.

I really enjoyed reading this book and will keep it on my shelf to read again. I just loved this guy and his unique way of solving murders and just looking at murders will keep me coming back. These are fast reads but very enjoyable. I can't wait to get into the next set of Detective Anderson stories.
