    Lait was known as a taciturn, tireless digger of news stories. The investigation gets very personal when the cartel decides to target Sunny and his family to make Chicago confidential book an example of what happens when you interfere with the drug cartel. Inhe started his journalistic career as a picture messenger for Chicago newspapers. Mixing often humorous anecdotes with clear, concise reports from the cutting edge of canine science, Bekoff details what we know and outlines what we have yet to learn about our closest non-human friends. If there's another weakness to Confidential, it is Heller's improbable resiliency of the heart. In the interim, Collins will no doubt continue to build upon a series that is becoming a compendium of midth Century crime using the genre of historical fiction as a vehicle.

    Like Chicago confidential book book, the finale is real Chicago, not a writer's imagination. Anyone who's been keeping up with the Heller "memoirs" over the last two decades knows this guy isn't shy around women, and his attentions are lustfully reciprocated. A masterly work by the master. Heller's decision to flaunt Jackie on his arm at a popular nightclub frequented by the malicious Rocco turns what had been a benign association between the gumshoe and the racketeer into an combustible rivalry. Native VIPs who can afford the flossy resorts are mostly gamblers and gangsters, or well-heeled merchants and their fraus or sweeties.

    The three protagonists are LAPD officers. Nate, though, will have none of it, and fires his old friend rather than risk drawing attention to himself because of Drury's crusade "to cleanse this city. Like the book, the finale is real Chicago, not a writer's imagination. The male authors have plenty of atavistic advice.
