Steve Jackson's ROUGH TRADE is a better than average true crime account Drifter con man and psychopath Steve Riggan Jr consorted with the crack addicts and prostitutes two groups which overlap to a great deal in Denver's seedy Colfax Avenue district Sadly the injuries he imposed on a young woman new to the world's oldest profession Anita Paley resulted in her death in 1997 Riggan was put on trial for capital murder The real keystone of this book however is Joanna Cordova a female Denver policewoman whose career went into a tailspin partly because she had cheated on a test and had wound up a crack addict and prostitute but nonetheless could help with the murder investigation When Cordova disappears from ROUGH TRADE the narrative suffers and the lengthy doings over medical testimony and sentencing toward the end of the book make it seem overlong For the most part though the book is very well researched and well written Fans of true crime will feel their time well spent
