The Second Girl (Frank Marr) - David Swinson

if one goes by the amount of reviewers, and "best of the year" list-makers, who read and assessed the Crime novels of 2016 and praised this one...this book is a must-read. so I must read it next! I did read a book starring a detective who was also a drug addict--a crack cocaine addict, to be specific--and I felt that that one was a bit of a letdown. but hopefully any trepidation I feel about engaging with that plot device again so soon, and thus feeling a bit weary of it, will be put aside by this book matching up with its critical reaction. it sounds amazing.
