Recommend to fans of Gotham and those who like their novels with lots of action and substance. 'Dex Territory' by Mark Aberdeen gives you a kick in the face, but in a joyful way that you'll like. After a long week at work, I thoroughly enjoyed the suspense and settings of this hard-boiled detective story. The author captures the unique detail of each character, making them real as if the reader already knows them personally. He masterfully lets the reader enjoy the vibrant warmth and charm of the main character Rick O'Shea as he intertwines the strengths and flaws in all of the character as the plot unfolds. Excellent read!
