'Life's A Bitch. So Am I.' Rachel Cord, P.I.

( 7 )

Overview

Life's tough. When it gets nasty; get tougher!


I stared into the dark. Far-off lights reflected, shimmered and danced on the roiling water. The river washed everything downstream while the lights sparkled in one place. It was all illusion. Somewhere, deep below, hidden within the weeds and muck, buried, lurked other things. Things that wouldn't, couldn't, be washed away. Unseen. Unknown. Waiting. Life had moved on, but, like the lights on the ...

Overview

Life's tough. When it gets nasty; get tougher!


I stared into the dark. Far-off lights reflected, shimmered and danced on the roiling water. The river washed everything downstream while the lights sparkled in one place. It was all illusion. Somewhere, deep below, hidden within the weeds and muck, buried, lurked other things. Things that wouldn't, couldn't, be washed away. Unseen. Unknown. Waiting. Life had moved on, but, like the lights on the water, I was stuck in one place. And I dread the horrid things buried within.

Hard-boiled? or only poached in Tabasco? Either way, private detective Rachel Cord pursues multiple threads seeking a runaway teen and why gay performers are being beaten at Miss Kitty's Kathouse Kabaret. The threads twist and bind becoming a tight cord of lost love, child pornography, rape, murder, and near insanity.

    Funny, funny, funny

    Funny, irrelevant, cool. That's R.E. Conary's first in the Rachel Cord series, Life's a B****. So Am I, and what a terrific series it's turning out to be. Over-the-top? You betcha! Mainstream? No way. This is a writer taking chances, instead of simply following the gang. Rachel Cord is terrific as a private investigator and it's to Conary's credit he has refused to water her down. Highly recommended by crime writing ace Sam Millar, and that's good enough for me. Buy it. Steal it. Whatever you do, read it.

    I Also Recommend:

    Her business card says it all...

    You pick up a detective book, and what do you expect? A case. A case that has not yet been solved. And it is up to you, the reader, to venture on a journey with the detective attempting to solve said case along the way.

    In R.E. Conary's book, the reader meets a detective..with a case. The difference is Conary's detective is not the type one would expect. Conary's detective is a well-endowed lesbian female, blessed with a quick wit and a bad attitude. Her business card says it all.

    The story is fast, fun and an easy read. Like some other reviewers, I was disturbed by some of the descriptions, but the element of surprise is one of the reasons why readers read books.

    Reviewed for POD Book Reviews and More

    R.E. Conary proves that she's not afraid to break the rules in this first novel in a series about a female, gay private investigator. Rachel Cord is an ex-Army MP living in an unnamed city in America's Heartland, trying to make a living as a private detective. In this book, a search for a missing teenager and an investigation into a series of assaults outside a gay nightclub quickly develop into a tangled web of pornography, graft, underage sex trade, and shady real estate deals. When the narrator herself becomes victim to a violent assault, this novel diverts from the customary formula for the hard-boiled detective novel and takes an unpredictable path.
