The Last Good Kiss, by James Crumley

  • Title:  The Last Good Kiss
  • Author:  James Crumley
  • Found At Take One/Leave One Bookcase At Ocean City Beach Condo
  • Started:  4/25/2010

I found this one in at the beach condo in Ocean City, MD, but I'd have sworn it was a book I've been wanting to read for a while.  Was the book there when we bought the beach condo?  Did I bring it down one weekend and forget about it?
Anyway, I brought it back to DC on Sunday and started reading it almost immediately.  From 4 pm until about 10 pm, I read the book straight through with just a few breaks.  I didn't find many of the characters, even the detective who is narrating, very likeable.  But it's a good mystery that kept me on my toes the entire time.

I hated to see the dog(s) killed, and the violence against women wasn't pleasant.  But it was a book that I started & finished in one day, so it was hard to put down.
