S is a former cop turned drug runner who is addicted to an unidentified substance known as Heavy Liquid. When a rich client wants him to find a reclusive artist, it leads him to Paris, unrequited love, and plenty of trouble. Maybe it’s because I’m not thrilled with Pope’s art, but I couldn’t really get into the character. Maybe I found the set-up too generic and the conclusion too geared for a sequel. Thanks to Marjore for giving me this book.
