BARONI by Alfred Harris


Email this review


Southern California late afternoon for Detective Lou Baroni, who would like to boost his pension just before retirement--but how? By solving a Sicilian family hit to protect the worthless son of Nick Pappas--or by pulling in the gentle husband of a woman who drops from the fifth-floor apartment where she had nagged her husband to her death? When last seen, he and the husband are literally sailing off into the sunset toward a better life. You might think of Wambaugh, burlier creator of cops with hearts of gold under their brass badges, but Harris' Baroni wears a warmer smile and you'll be glad to retire with him.
