The Disappearing Body

I picked this book up from the SF public library when I picked up Louse (see the prior post), and should have taken this on the trip to Chicago. It is a good if not perfect airplane book. A mystery with many murders, a little sex, a large cast of characters and a complex, convoluted plot which is set in a thinly disguised Manhattan in the 1930’s. Gangsters, drugs, politics, cops, communists, unions, union busters are all included in the story. A quick start got me involved though it did kind of peter out as all the plot threads were pulled together at the end.
