Can he teach a sewer crocodile how to turn over? Good continuation of a uirky humorous and edgy series The sewers and the attitudes kind of stink but we have sewer saint Jimmy Flannery to guide us through to a better day In the third book in the Jimmy Flannery series a light hearted series that features a Chicago precinct worker as the unlikeliest of detectives It is a city where the old world of favor for favor is fading out and the old guard is retiring Flannery is a redheaded Irishman who simply wants to do favors for his community and doesn’t really have an interest in power politics But he has a knack for getting involved with dead bodies and situations and cover ups and he like any junkyard dog doesn’t let go once he gets his teeth into somethingIn this book he encounters every sewer worker’s nightmare a body severed in half by a giant crocodile but when he tries to find out what happened because in the natural course of things there should not be any crocodiles in Chicago’s sewers he finds people trying to shut down his investigationWhat’s great about this series is the different neighborhoods that Flannery encounters and the down home way of talking and narrating Flannery has that always make you feel as if you are sitting in a tavern having a beer with him listening to him spout off wild yarns I liked it Sorry no one else did Robert Campbell Robert Wright Campbell takes some getting used to his main character Jimmy Flannery barely if that made it thru high school and is in Chicago in the 1980s But after three or four pages I adapted to the poor grammar spoken by Jimmy Jimmy is a funny savvy survivor in a world of crooks His father Mike is some help and his will be wife is a working class woman There is no prejudice no extra characters tho there are plenty of those no misdirection and at 206 pages it is short and sweet
