Auch in ihrer Heimatstadt Leipzig geschehen seltsame Dinge und Unheil bahnt sich an. In deciphering the imposter's intentions, Jerry's qualities of honesty, responsibility and downright hard work are seriously put to the test. Nor does anything much happen to Jerry himself, inside or out: he's just an amalgam of Higgins' various alter egos, with arbitrary moments of roughness, vulgarity, tenderness. Snowflakes are people which discomfort melts. And you laugh too knowing it's the punchline even you don't know why it's funny.

Higgins usually writes about criminal types, but his novels cannot be considered mysteries as such, nor are the strictly sociological studies. So like in his book you're getting a beer with Jerry Kennedy, over to the Calumet there that used to be the Hook before Bobby Quinn's wife died and he couldn't take it no more and went to Florida. And at home too, where sexy, saucy wife Mack holds the fort, Jerry has a problem: his impossibly wonderful 15-year-old daughter Heather has been helping a pathetic pregnant friend to get an abortion, thus angering the friend's sociopathic boyfriend.

The first time Higgins introduces his character, Jerry Kennedy, a browbeat defense lawyer who knows his way around the legal system. Higgins' novels are conversationally and anecdotally driven. His life is at home with his wife, Mack, and their 15-year-old daughter, Saigon- her real name is Heather, but it was her timely arrival that allowed Kennedy to avoid the draft and a sojourn in Vietnam. I believe just the opposite to be true; le Carre has invented a wholly convincing environment and peopled it with totally believable characters, thereby creating an illusion of reality and simultaneously performing a sleight of hand that has transmogrified a tired genre into a fresh and definitive body of work. But we do not go to trial. The author's trademark is his dialogue not plotting and the narrative just kind of ambles along with the various subplots working themselves out in the end. It was ok, he's only reading what's written.

As always, he lets his characters tell you the story almost exclusively through colloquial, street-savvy dialogue, but unlike his previous novel, A Year or So With Edgar, it's a lot easier to wade through this time around -- and it's funny! The dialog sets the pace for the plot. The back-and-forth banter in this book is rapid-fire and always very, very clever. That Jerry Kennedy though, he can tell a story.
