Trickster - Jeff Somers I didn't finish this one. The writing was pretty good, but I stopped after three chapters when I realized that though we had already encountered a TON of characters, only four of them were female and they were, respectively: a naked dead girl in a bathtub, a hungover bartender who doesn't even get a line, a random poker player extra who likewise doesn't get any lines, and a naked girl tied up in the trunk of a car. There were also a few prostitutes wandering around, but they were mostly scenery so I didn't count them. The summary of the book implies that tied-up-in-trunk girl was going to become a significant character, but when our intrepid protagonist duo not only LEFT HER IN THE TRUNK but TOSSED THE BODY OF HER CAPTOR IN ON TOP OF HER, I'd had enough. No, thanks.
