    One thought on “3 Quarters”

    1. I got this book on the "cheap" and wasn't expecting much out of it. I had never read Denis Hamill before and haven't run across any of his work since, but I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I've read my share of cop novels and this is one of my favorites! Gritty, believable characters, a good story, and a great pace. If Mr. Hamill writes more of these type books, I'll be there with bells on.

    2. Slightly above average mystery/thriller regarding crooked cops and the 3/4 pension scam, taken down by the hero. A cop wrongfully put away for the crime he didn't commit (murdering his second wife) with the help of a schmuck and scheister of a lawyer and his go-get-em 14 year old daughter. A few memorable laughs, decent action, but overall not that unique.
