This has to be the best book I have read in a long time. Miles Corwin really knows how to draw you in and spit you out and leave you begging for more. Wow! Corwin is a former LA Times reporter and really knows his stuff and I can’t wait to read more of what he writes.

Kind of Blue by Miles CorwinKind of Blue” introduces Ash Levine, an LA detective, who quit the department after his witness in a homicide case was murdered. Ash had promised the witness that he would protect her. He has been haunted by guilt since her death.

Lieutenant Frank Duffy, who feels that Ash is his best detective, asks Ash to return to work to investigate the death of Pete Relovich, a former police officer. Pete had quit the force after serving thirteen years. Pete’s father also served as a police officer. Pete’s murder appeared to be a breaking and entering gone bad. A number of people in authority want Pete’s murderer found and punished. Duffy felt that Ash was the person to accomplish this task.

Ash accepted the job not only because he had been at loose ends since quitting but also felt that it would give him a better chance to investigate the death of Latisha Patton, the witness in his homicide case.
