Overview

Baby Shark’s BEAUMONT BLUES (Baby Shark series book #2) by Robert Fate

Library Journal - Starred Review

In September 1956 a Texas oil heiress goes missing and Otis Millett and his new partner at the Millett Agency are asked to find her. This is Kristin Van Dijk’s first big job as a P.I., and it seems simple enough until she realizes the spoiled girl’s disappearance is tangled up with murderous Beaumont gangsters, a big bag full of cash, crooked lawyers, a chesty waitress who wears Evening in Paris, and a Dallas Police detective who has dimples. The action never stops in this Baby Shark crime adventure with twists you never see coming.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Starred Review - Teresa Jacobsen
Fate's witty dialog, colorful characters, and nonstop action make this pulp-style piece sparkle. Let's hope for more in this series. Highly recommended.
Gumshoe, A Literary Investigation - Beth Slater
Baby Shark is back, and she's as hot as ever! . . . Beaumont Blues is an awesome, non-stop follow-up to Fate's first novel.
Front Street Reviews - Barb Radmore
Oh Baby, Baby. She is back, all rough, tough and soft around the edges. Kristin Van Dijk, who we met in Baby Shark, has returned in an action driven plot that makes this a one-sitting book. The action is faster than a bullet, or is that as fast as numerous bullets? Non-stop suspense and thrills, and an ending that is satisfyingly unexpected, with the humor that makes these books so creative and welcomed.
Book Pleasures - Norm Goldman
Everything Fate writes holds your interest to the very end with a style that is unequivocally readable. And the ending will throw you for a loop!

Kristin Van Dijk may be a teenager, but she¿s grown into a full fighter in this, the second in Fate¿s Baby Shark series. She owns her moniker. She¿s now a PI with her mentor/teacher. The two of them work well together, figuring out what¿s going on, who¿s doing what, and how they can survive. Baby Shark holds her own, doing as much and sometimes most of the fighting and stopping the bad guys. She¿s not only fun to read, she¿s an interesting and complex character. She has her own tragic past and in Baby Shark¿s Beaumont Blues she¿s beginning to recover from it and is becoming a strong woman and definitely a force to be reckoned with.
