I thought that this book was interesting, but it's tough reading that the detective keeps getting her ass handed to her. Good story, but a little more toughness in the lead character would have been better. Great surprise ending!!

This is a poorly written and highly implausible book. The main character is a cardboard caricature -- tough, rude and takes-no-sh*t. Still, she gets attacked numerous times and barely survives... but always survives! Half-way through there is a cheesy "poem" written, as someone sincerely announces, by "Anon" -- as though it was Browning or Shakespeare. And I had to keep checking it was actually published in 2014 -- no one apparently has a cell phone/texts.

I suspect this was self-published. No one else would/should touch it.
