Fiction. Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:From the co-creator and executive producer of the television show Cold Case Files, a fast-paced, stylish murder mystery featuring a tough-talking Irish cop turned private investigator who does for the city of Chicago what Elmore Leonard did for Detroit and Raymond Chandler did for Los Angeles.

Chicago private investigator Michael Kelly is hired by his former partner, John Gibbons, to help solve an eight-year-old rape and battery case. When Gibbons turns up dead, Kelly enlists a team of his savviest colleagues to connect the dots between the recent murder and the cold case it revived: a television reporter whose relationship with Kelly is not strictly professional; his best friend from childhood, now a forensic DNA expert; a detective with a special interest in rape cases; and a friend from the DA??s office. To close the case, Kelly will have to face the mob, a serial killer, his own double-crossing friends, and the mean streets of the city he loves.

At first I thought this book was just an average hard-boiled detective novel. My favorite part was when one of my favorite true crime shows (Cold Case Files) was mentioned since the author was a co-creator of the series. I thought I had easily figured out who was behind the mystery. Then I looked down at my audiobook and realized I still had an hour of listening left. Harvey had a few twists and turns to throw my way. I enjoyed the story, and will definitely read more in the series. ( )

The Chicago Way is the first in what I assume will be a series. If so, Harvey should do pretty well. The first book usually sets the scene for the series and introduces the character, without developing him too much. That happens over the course of the series. Such was the case for this book, which introduced P.I. Michael Kelly but didn’t manage to flesh him out beyond the surface layer. Although the story is well told and the ending held more than one surprise for me, it didn’t break any new ground for the genre. And I think Harvey made a mistake in killing off one particular character too soon. This was just a good story, well told. ( )

This was not my typical mystery read (being in the noir style), and I loved it anyway. It's always fun to find a book outside my "comfort zone" that I really enjoy. This one was a recommendation from my dad.

Michael Kelly is a former cop turned private detective who is hired to solve a cold case. But this is a much more complicated case than first appears, with repercussions stretching all the way to the present.

Harvey knows how to write about a cold case. He was the executive producer of a great true crime show, Cold Case Files. This is a book full of twists and turns, especially a huge twist at the end that I did not see coming. ( )

had the pleasure of meeting this author several years ago at a “meet and greet” at my library. He was delightful. I like his breezy writing style. Initially it seemed like he was trying too hard to be Raymond Chandler, but after the first few chapters he relaxed into the story. The plot may have been a bit predictable, but the local color is excellent. I actually liked the characters and did not find that the plot strained the limits of credibility. I look forward to the next one. ( )

Another debut mystery with a great sense of place: Chicago PI Michael Kelly is enlisted by his old friend, retired cop John Gibbons, to help solve a cold case from almost a decade ago. Kelly's investigation plunges him into a series of new killings, as well as a possible coverup of the original crime. Sharp noir prose, tight plotting, poetic violence and a colorful setting make this an outstanding debut.
"The Chicago Way" put me in mind of Marcus Sakey's "The Blade Itself", another of this year's top crime debuts featuring a down-and-dirty Chicago setting. Other mysteries with vivid backdrops: "A Stranger Lies There" by Stephen Santogrossi (desert noir based in Palm Springs), "The King of Lies" by John Hart (steamy North Carolina), and of course anything by James Lee Burke.
