Why read it?

1 author picked Chiseler with a Glass Jaw as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

The pair confront a blackmailing bully and try to shut down his operation. Their hedonistic approach to life, even in the most intense moments, is lighthearted and fun, and any woman who’s had a gay best friend or vice versa will recognize the humor in the pair of them chasing the same guys.

From Christopher's list on LA detectives with complex emotional lives.
