"What a waste of good pancakes."
George Kuch returns again as the Kansas City elderly cop, Walt Williams, with tales of his family, friends and policing experiences. This time there is a serial killer on the loose, and partner, Ox, is planning to marry his Judy: the fearless big man becoming as nervous "as a long tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs". Gerry is is around to freely pepper the text with his comedic one liners and, for once, Walt doesn't have to go under cover - well, he has recently returned from the dead.
As always, the narration is perfect, capturing Walt's personality and humour. Mr.Kuch is the sixty something detective. And this book is great, too, returning to more light-hearted themes, despite multiple murders.
I can't recommend this series too highly. I loved it.
