I heard about this book during an interview with the author, Jack Clark, on NPR. Clark a long-time cab driver in Chicago takes his experience to write a crime novel that is pretty entertaining.
The premise of the book is a cab driver is trying to solve two murders - one that he witnessed and one of his friend and fellow cab driver.
The writing is fine - nothing too impressive, it reads quite realistically and as I imagine how conversations in a cab often take place. The story is entertaining but nothing terribly surprising. It's a quick read and an enjoyable read for the most part. I think I found the interview with Jack Clark (which is on NPR's website) more intriguing than the book.
