What seems like a cut and dried case of dog-napping quickly propels our loveable but grumpy PI, once again, into the bowels of New Hopeland for answers. What she finds, following lead after lead, are more questions. Not one to be deterred, despite the threat of death hanging over her head, she perseveres and brings things to a satisfying conclusion…well, as satisfying as anything can get in a city where corrupt might not actually mean corrupt.
Throw into this satisfying mix of intrigue and action, the budding romance with her girlfriend, Lori, and you have a story that works on all levels. Happily, the tech-talk in this book was toned down so that I could understand it, or perhaps having been through the genesis of book one, I was more in tune with Doyle’s inventive mind. Either way, this book flowed smoothly and not once did I lose track of the action.
Once again, Cassie Tam becomes your favorite investigator, only this time we get to see more of Caz as a person, which has you rooting for her all the way. The periphery characters are once again, exquisitely drawn, giving you just enough insight into their back-stories to yearn for more.
Yes! More, please!
