(A David Gold and A.C. Battles Mystery)
This first entry in a new series by accomplished author and attorney Sheldon Siegel is totally riveting. Set in Chicago, Area 2 Detective David Gold (a lifelong resident of South Chicago) and his new partner, Detective A. C. Battles, track an elusive bomber who seems determined to shut down the city. Author Siegel keeps the suspense constantly rising, the characters constantly comprehensible, and the reader constantly involved in the story. He also takes us through South Chicago's geography and history. I eagerly anticipate the return of Gold and Battles, two very likable detectives and characters of integrity.
