With her friend Mercury still in a coma, Dex is taking things personally -- perhaps too personally. As the investigation stalls, Dex begins to veer out of control, and there's no telling who might get hurt in her wake.
While this series is not a MUST-read it is an enjoyable addition to Rucka's extensive library of Crime stories and not a bad one at that. While some may prefer to stick to his more famous series like Lazarus you have to respect the author's versatility and ability to tell both expansive and small-scale mysteries. Stumptown falls into the smaller scale of his literary repitoire. It's mostly a character study and at times feels like a creative writing exercise for Rucka as he plays around with traditional mystery tropes. Perhaps not the best series he's ever written but the passion is there and the end is something that feels quite personal and authentic. This book isworth picking up if you are a Rucka completionist but not a must-readotherwise. Read Full Review
