Overview

Amber Eckart is a Seattle investigator with a nose for truth and red ink in her books; bills are piling up, and the creditors are starting to get nasty. So when a downtown lawyer drops a big check on the table and asks her to poke at a dodgy foreclosure, it looks like the easy money she needs. But in the world of twenty-first century finance, little is simple...and less is sacred.
Hot on the trail of a stolen home, Amber finds a complex web of big money and shady deals - a development project with millions of dollars at stake and a cabal more than willing to play fast and loose with the law. With a trio of tech-savvy misfits riding shotgun, Amber must brave the margin between commerce and crime - a place where the shadows are deep, the dying is easy and the only way out is further in...

    I have to be honest I have never written a book review, beyond S

    I have to be honest I have never written a book review, beyond SciFi Orwellian fiction the only thing I had ever really gotten into was paperback westerns. I read bits and pieces in digital and wanted to not only help out a friend, but expand my reading scope. Mr. Plume's book is reminiscent of the radio gumshoe sleuths that keep you hooked on the details and straight forward whitehate/blackhat-goodguy/badguy simplicity you could find in spaghetti westerns. The main character, Amber Eckart, is smart, spunky, and determined; she drives the story in a manner I could relax and get very comfortable in reading the book. I can't wait for the next book.
