"Sam Birge is not good looking. He's not witty, urbane, cool, or sophisticated. What he is is a plodding, methodical investigator who will doggedly pursue a case until it's solved. Walk the Dark Streets is a short little book but wonderfully written. Sam Birge is not flashy or showy and neither is the writing in this book. Gritty and to the point, that's what makes this a great story.
I will definitely be on the look out for more Sam Birge mysteries."
