Riassunto: In this crime novel, Jimmy Flannery has to investigate the deaths of three would-be models. Someone is "thinning the turkey herd", the name given to the hundreds of hopeful models that arrive in Chicago every day. The author's first Jim Flannery book, "The Junkyard Dog", won an Edgar award.
From Publishers Weekly:
Fans of fictional Chicago pol Jimmy Flannery, who might have been disappointed with Campbell's Hip-Deep in Alligators, rejoice: the precinct captain/sewer inspector is back in fine form. A flock of out-of-town models (the "turkey herd") have been found dead in the last year, but Chicago's cops aren't interested. Flannery's alderman-friend Janet, a feminist activist he calls "lipstick lesbian," wants Jimmy to investigate. Her interest becomes personal when her friend Joyce, a model, doesn't show up to move into her apartment. After Flannery discovers Joyce strangled in a neighbor's apartment, he probes deeper and eventually nails the not very surprising, but very creepy, killer. Along the way he meets a wonderfully mixed bag of outlandish characters (exterminator Willy Dink stands out), conducts a hilarious raid on an animal shelter and adopts a mongrel dog almost as charming as himself.
