A very good story that deserves more attention and recognition than it has previously received,

City of the DeadCity of the Dead by Herbert Lieberman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was first published in the 70s and it hasn’t received the recognition it deserves.
Think Tempe Brennan or Kay Scarpetta but male, old and grumpy.
Lieberman has created a character walking the tightrope of emotional instability, constant professional pressure and his fear of loss.
The main character Konig finds himself wandering between nostalgic moments of reminiscence, whilst dancing the game of internal politics and to top it all off his daughter is missing.
It is dark and certain parts leave a sense of melancholy.
All in all it is realistic, detailed and a heck of a good read.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.
