Review: <i>Baby Crimes</i> by Randall Hicks

Today, in January Magazine’s crime fiction section, contributing editor James R. Winter reviews Baby Crimes by Randall Hicks. Says Winter:

Hicks spins a good yarn, with character touches that echo classic private eyes such as Jeremiah Healy’s John Francis Cuddy. Just as Cuddy would talk to his dead wife at her graveside (sometimes with replies), Dillon spends time on a landlocked boat in his grandfather’s orchard, talking to the old man, asking for advice. It’s a clever device for getting inside Dillon’s head, and, like Healy, Hicks doesn’t get too maudlin about it.
