Book: Lush Life

Life is anything but lush in the lower east side eighth precinct. Detective Matty Clark, a beefy Irish cop, and his empathetic partner Yolanda struggle to solve a homicide plagued by false eyewitness testimony, an interfering troubled father of the victim, and just plain bad luck. This is not my favorite genre, but I did find this book enjoyable. The author, Richard Price, is one of the creators of "The Wire," a highly acclaimed television show that I have not seen.

My rating: **** (out of 5)
