View All Available Formats & Editions


Requiem for Rosco is a complex murder mystery set in Chicago. It gives readers a gritty, poignant tour of the city, navigating from the Gold Coast to the housing projects, and ultimately to the financial center on LaSalle Street. It is as much an intimate love story as it is a mystery. Gallagher's quick-cut pacing is a grabber, keeping three distinctive male characters and equally strong female characters in balance. The multiple viewpoints of this ambitious literary architecture allow Gallagher to delve intimately into the murder of Rosco Mink, a wealthy investment manager. Longer initial chapters grow shorter and move faster, accelerating the cinematic pace. Mink's vicious murder, and the personal consequences to those drawn into the investigation, are developed with great depth and intensity.
