Eight Forty-Eight


The Amateurs is the fourth crime novel Marcus Sakey set in Chicago. And like his other books, the characters are decent, normal people who for various reasons, do some awful things. He says that real people aren't absolutely good, or absolutely bad.
Music Button: Buddy Morrow, "Perry Mason Theme", from the CD Crime Jazz Volume 2, (Rhino records)
