This is the first book I have read by Henry Kisor. It
will not be my last. While police procedurals are not
my go to mystery genre, Mr Kisor has written an engaging
book. Even the fact that there was a serial killer running
amok did not deter me from reading and enjoying this
well written book. So, if you like mysteries that are
a little different than your usual cozy, then Hang Fire
is one you might want to check out.
