I am not sure if reading this Roberts book first is a good thing or not. On the one hand with no previous knowledge, Milan Jacovich is a fresh character, fairly well developed in this book, exciting and complex. However reading the other reviews it seems that reading his earlier books would be the prudent thing to do to really know our hero. As a stand alone this book is certainly a strong piece, but once I read his other works, I may change my mind.
This was a quick read for me (one day), but a very good one as well. Being familiar with Cleveland and her landmarks adds greatly to this book, but the thrilling nature of the story should grasp you even if you've never been to the Rock and Roll City. It turns out to be a bit more kinky than I was expecting, but then surprises are usually just that!
Two minor problems I had with the book had to do with Roberts overuse of the word "bucolic" and the ending. I counted his use of the word 3 times and lets be honest here, it's a great word, but when overused, as it is here, it loses its flavor. Secondly, the ending comes too fast and leaves a few things dangling. I don't want to ruin any of the plot; however he could have tidied up a few of the "relationship" strings.
I've heard that this will be the last Cleveland based book (something about his publisher or agent saying he's worn out Cleveland). I hope this is not the case and I really look forward to reading his other works.
This is a solid effort and well worth you time if you like thrillers.

I, and apparently a lot of local ( as in close to Cleveland ) readers, like anything Les Roberts writes and Milan does.....our local used book store seldom has any on the shelves. Milan is, like a lot of us, a bit overweight, smokes too much, loves his kids but has trouble watching them grow up, is a single parent with an interesting but transient love life....he knows newspaper columnists, police officers and Mafia Dons, is neither suave or debonair and sometimes stumbles around before getting the right answer. I like him because he is real and his cases (and clients) sound real and his locations are places I've been. I've not talked much about the story line other than to say that I enjoyed it and once I started it, didn't get a lot done til I finished it. I have only one more book (The Indian Sign) to go in this series and already have it on my Kindle. I've never "met " Milan but I think I've seen him sucking up a Strohs at the Elks. A good book.

A young female internet executive seems to have committed suicide by jumping off a bridge at 4:00am. Her father hires private eye Milan Jacovich to clarify what really happened. The police have already classified the case as a suicide. Jacovich interviews her friends and work associates. Something doesn't ring true to him about the case. As he delves deeper he discovers an important clue. He feels in his gut that this was no suicide. He uncovers an internet snuff site that showed porno and finished with the actual murder of the prostitute actress. This was a quick moving page turner. I must say that my first thought before reading the book was who cares about a drama in Cleveland. Well, I was wrong. I thought it was a great read and look forward to reading more of the author.

THE DUTCH, know what that means? I didn't but Les Roberts lets us know. This is book twelve in this series based in Cleveland, and very good series it is. This one takes the PI into a suicide that might be a murder. The story was a little slow but then again Jacovich, for me, is more realistic than most and the pave is always a little slower. Series, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Very dramatic story. Unexpected events. Very detailed. Another well written novel by Les Roberts. Peggy Ann

We’re knocking off author Roberts’ Milan Jacovich series, about a Cleveland-based tough PI, in order – the “Dutch”, cop jargon for a suicide, is his and our 12th in this currently 19-book set. Milan is hired by the father of Ellen Carnine, a successful “dot.com”-type professional, albeit a generally unattractive and lonely 30-ish single woman. Dad wants to know what possibly could lead to his daughter’s death. While not Milan’s typical case, he takes it on; and for half the novel learns only a little about her girlfriends and colleagues, as we readers get almost as depressed as our leading man. But as Milan learns about chat rooms and internet porn of the worst kind, he starts to zero in on what may have really been a murder. A visit from two tough guys to warn him off the case actually helps him move along his investigation, which, ere it’s over, reveals the sordid side of what sometimes goes on online.

While the ultimate solution to all the loose ends of the case get tidied up, we typically find less joy in a favorite character who gets wrapped up in something this unpleasant, affecting our entertainment value negatively. There’s nothing at all wrong with “Dutch” – the storyline is just not one of our preferred topics, to say the least.

This is relevant to all of his recent books.

At one point in his career he wrote compelling, well written prose. Good plots and interesting characters, too, even if the Italian mobsters were evocative of Richard Condon's great Prizzi novels.

However, as of late he has resorted to what I regard as some soft-porn sections. After I read them I felt as if I needed to take a shower.

I just feel that when I picked up his recent novels I could no longer read them, and do not want them in my house.

Shame on him!
