Overview

After the death of her father and his partner, Sam Marlow inherits the detective agency along with their male secretary Kelly.

Her first case alone was brought to her, by dignitaries from the British Embassy involving a renowned author who maybe the missing heir to the Duke of Faulkner.

She accepted the case even though it just didn't feel right from the very beginning. Sam, Kelly and Detective John Chambers are drawn into the unseen side of Washington, D.C..

Finding out exactly who this author is thrusts them into espionage and the CIA. Can a female investigator triumph over the international spies and those chasing them?

I found the plot quite engrossing with a lot of intrigue.   I greatly disliked all the characters.  I don't remember ever finding such a group of bad-tempered, unlikable people gathered in the same book..  I can't begin to imagine how many times the author used "snarled" or "sneered" to describe their conversations with each other.  The supposedly professional police and CIA constantly let the private eye heroine traipse through crime scenes, contaminating and//or removing evidence.  They included her in very dangerous situations as if they were all 1 big team.  They did not prevent her from going off on her own multiple times placing herself and others in great danger.  All they did was sort of shrug their shoulders and say, "Oh, well, that's just what she's like.  No one can tell her what to do."   Since the plot was good, I would try another book by this author.  But I will never read a book about these same characters.

Nice bit of intrigue with enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested until the very end. I also liked the main characters &would like to see them brought back in another book.

Good plot but unpleasant characters. They are rude, always sneering, screaming and shouting at one another. I realize Sam is supposed to be tough and fearless, but she cones across as stupidly impulsive and bratty. The editing is also very poor.

I should have noticed before I read this book that it was self-published. It was almost impossible to read because of the pervasive grammar, usage and punctuation errors. Questions without question marks, sentences run together without periods, commas in strange places, past tense words without ending in ed, Almost every paragraph had glaring errors. Add to that the characters who could not talk without yelling, screaming or snarling - and those were the characters who liked each other. The plot was interesting but flawed. If this author writes another book, she would be well-advised to have someone proof-read it before publishing.
