The WD’s Book Club looks home for the next reading pick; The Dime, by local author Kathleen Kent, a crime thriller masterly set in a menacing, noir-like Dallas.
Kent neatly balances in The Dime the tough talk and high body count of a traditional hard-boiled detective novel, with the modern strength of this complex, flawed, and interesting protagonist, a red-haired Polish-Yankee lesbian, narcotics Det. Betty Rhyzyk, a tough-as-nails Brooklyn cop transplanted to Dallas.
