Anybody else read this? It was the first book I read by him. Didn't really enjoy it. I thought the protagonist was a jack ass (I was rooting for the cops -- which is odd for me). Plus, the parts of the prose that were supposed to be funny didn't even make me smirk; maybe I've been too spoiled by ultra-talented Robert B. Parker. Though, with Lashner, I gotta say, he's great with plot twists. . . .
