I read it years ago, might still have it somewhere, too. Don't recall much about it. Lead character was a guy named Gnossos. Seems I recall Farina was killed right about the time the book came out. I know Mimi Farina died within the past year. Farina's book isn't one that stands out in my memory. I might've read it twice. When I read a book more than three or four times, then I know its one of my favs,cuz I can remember so much of it.
