What I read #21
The Prostitutes' Ball by Stephen J. Cannell: Another fast-paced Shane Scully mystery. Shane has a new partner, Sumner "Hitch" Hitchens. Hitch is not only a detective, but also a Hollywood celebrity in his own right, having sold a story for a movie. Shane and Hitch are caught up in a triple homicide, which leads to finding more bodies linked to cold cases.
Cannell did a fantastic job of putting Shane and Hitch together. Their life styles and policing styles are entirely different, yet they gel into the perfect detective team.
This the latest Shane Scully mystery by Cannell. It was published in late 2010. I am wondering if it was his last work.
