LEIGH FORBES: Books of all Sorts

Hard Prejudice


by Dave Stanton.

Dan Reno is a tough-guy private eye, who teams up with side-kick Cody Gibbons to investigate a serious miscarriage of justice.

Sadly, and although I usually like this genre (and I did read to the end), I never really got into this book. It seemed to be full of race, breasts, and testosterone, which just got wearing for me. There were also two bizarre re-tellings of real-life events, (neither of which seemed to add anything to the story), and a weird political-philosophical brain-dump in the epilogue.

I wanted to like it more.
