True Crime is a detective novel for the media age. When a journalist finds himself covering his father’s murder, one of three killings that implicates the ex-girlfriend he still loves, his private and professional interests collide, and the dark side of his predatory career is exposed. Mewshaw’s cast of slippery politicians, scheming junkies, and frustrated lovers loads the knotty plot with tantalizing possibilities, but the resolution is forced and the story is larded with too much random violence, as if to distract the reader from the characters’ muddled motives. Still, Mewshaw is a shrewd and vivid writer with an eye for telling detail. B
