Review

       Set in Denver's North Side, Manuel Ramos noir centers around Gus Corral, a recently divorced second hand store manager who is down in the dumps. A chance meeting with an old high school acquaintance sets off a train of events with repercussions that stretch all the way back to Mexico.  At times, there are lulls in the action and the ending seemed a bit contrived but overall this is a good read. Ramos, a Denver lawyer and author is well acquainted with the city's geography and social groups and this is apparent from the descriptions of people and places in this book. I enjoyed being able to relate to places and also learn about other parts of the city that I don't frequent.
