Trade paperback.

I needed a Rhode Island book for NancyNova's 2015 MultiYear States Challenge, and I picked this one.

Providence reporter L.S.A. Mulligan is not happy: he'd much rather try to figure out who is setting fires in his old neighborhood than do a feel-good story about a loyal dog trekking cross-country, but his boss disagrees. Meanwhile, things with his girlfriend are heating up...

A few notes about this book:

• I've never seen something described as "darn right healthy". To me this should be "downright healthy"...but maybe it's a regional thing?

• I like this quote: "Princes never fully appreciate the survival tactics of their serfs."

• I figured out something important about the story at least a hundred pages before Mulligan did, but I still enjoyed the story.

• I hope the running gags of "Thanks-Dad" and Dorcas's standard phone greeting don't continue too much in the rest of the series; they started getting old fairly quickly.

I'm so glad you've found this book!

Won't you please make a journal entry to let the book's previous readers know that it's safely in your hands? How did you find it? What did you think of it? What are you going to do with it next?

It's now your book, for you to do with as you please: keep it, pass it to a friend, or maybe even leave it where someone else can find it!

If you've ever wondered where your books go after they leave your hands, join BookCrossing and you may find out: you'll be able to follow the further adventures of your books as new readers make journal entries - sometimes from surprisingly far-flung locations.

(Think of it like Where's George for books...or a little like geocaching - you can follow the book's journey every time someone makes a new entry. Some BookCrossers even leave books *in* geocaches!)

8 out of 10

Like hyphen8, I picked this for the states challenge.

Quirky offbeat light mystery. Blue collar reporter trying to figure out who's burning down his old neighborhood and why. Enjoyable light read - and I liked "Thanks-Dad" and other gags running throughout the book

Journal Entry 7 by eastbaybookmisr at Oakland, California USA on Wednesday, April 06, 2016

7 out of 10

Caught this a couple days ago in the mail, as a Wishlist RABCK! Thank you!

2010 Doherty trade paperback. This was on my list of best modern debut thrillers to read.

Edit February 6, 2018: I have mixed feelings. I enjoyed the dark humor, but I found the pervasive, embedded corruption of Rhode Island as presented here to be just so incredibly depressing. The storyline has a few red herrings that don't really get resolved, but I guess that is true to life. I currently have this ranked at #601 on my ranked list of best-read books lately.
