CBR Review: Doktor Sleepless #10

I recently reviewed Doktor Sleepless #10 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Despite Ellis’ fascination with emerging technology, when it comes to his detectives, he always shuns advances in technology and embraces human intelligence. Singer is able to talk to the man and get him to open up, because of the things she observes about him, altering her approach to suit those needs. Much of her technique goes unsaid, simply presented to the reader. The interrogation of a suspect is about getting the knowledge through any means necessary and, sometimes, that means being polite. That Ellis keeps having his detectives act that way goes against the usual hard-nose-beat-it-out-of-them approach other fictional detectives invariably use."
