Safety Valve (Burnside) by David Chill

Cliff Roper, first seen in the Burnside novel "Bubble Screen" hires LA shamus Burnside to prove he didn't attempt to kill his business partner.
As always, Burnside is a comfortable guide through the mystery. There's some twists and turns, some fights and of course we  read how Burnside's relationship with the love of his life continues.
There's also a plot concerning a jewel thief. Burnside seemed just a tad bit out of character when confronting the thief. Usually he seems just a bit less gung-ho than say Spenser, Reacher or Burke. I did like the attitude I have to admit.
Every novel in this series is enjoyable and contains everything you'd expect from a solid PI series. This one is no exception.
