  • A Tax in Blood is an exceptional noir detective novel by an exceptional author that was well deserving of receiving the 1988. Meticulously researched by Schutz, the seemingly improbable elements are all possible, and as history has shown, not at all unlikely. After two strong earlier novels, Schutz hits his stride in this page turner novel.

  • The first two Leo Haggerty books (Embrace the Wolf and All the Old Bargains) were missing persons cases, with various other sordid complications. Here, in his third outing, Haggerty is hired by a slick lawyer to help a client whose insurance agency is refusing to pay out the life insurance on her husband. The husband died in a hotel room with a suicide note, but it's not that straightforward.

    Meanwhile, the country is rocked by several terrorist attacks -- including a bomb at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial -- from an unknown group. Naturally, this ends up being connected to Haggerty's case, but it doesn't make for seamless storytelling. The attempt to push the two plots together is kind of awkward and improbable, and a step backward for the series. The one saving grace is that the coda is appropriately grim and realistic.

    Those who've read the previous two books will enjoy some further exploration of Haggerty's friendship with his sidekick Arnie, the continued development of his relationship with his writer girlfriend, and his guardianship of a teenage girl. There are a few good set-piece scenes, most notably, the takedown of a vicious pimp, but the whole story is just too over-the-top.
