Peter Spiegelman's Red Cat is the third in his series about private investigator John March, and the reason I started reading these in the first place - I saw a banner ad for this book, and was sufficiently intrigued by the noir imagery. I liked the first two novels, and waited patiently for the Red Cat paperback to come out (I am getting to be a cheapskate, trying to spend less money on books while still getting a lot of reading in). I liked this as much, maybe even more than the first two in the series. We learn more about March and the tension between him and his siblings when his brother is blackmailed by a woman he had an affair with. The story is plausible enough, including the workings of the police department, and how the detective comports himself in the midst of their investigation. I'm already looking forward to the next March novel.
