Savage Justice, Ron Handberg
I was on call one day and forgot to bring Foucault's Pendulum to work with me. I looked around the garage and found three books. There was no way I was going to read two of them, so that left this one. It has the kind of cover one sees in the supermarket checkout line, featuring a gavel with blood dripping on it. Ooh, the justice will surely be savage! Well, especially with my lowered expectations, it turns out I liked this book. Alex Collier is a news anchor who investigates a pedophiliac judge. It's not earth-shattering by any means, but it's a good story. And it happens to take place in Minneapolis. I don't recall ever reading a novel that takes place here. I think I read it over the course of about four days; it's a quick, entertaining read.
