I really felt as puzzled as the main character, Rachel Chavez, as to what was going on. Only guessed towards the end, since Rachel really stumbles upon two different plots. She is trying to get by, minding the parking garage she has inherited and minding her own business, but gets drawn in unwillingly by association into the business of water in California- crucial for such a populous state that has so much desert & drought. Farmers, scientists, environmentalists, politicians and government agencies, and bureaucrats, none of whom are clearly all good or all bad, become suspects, even as Rachel befriends them or already knows them. Afraid of the cops and the villains, Rachel ends up on the run. Luckily she has a few new friends plus a love interest to turn to for help. I especially like Goldie, her new wannabe police recruit pal, (merry maid by necessity). Rachel's backstory becomes part of the plot too, as she discovers she is a lot tougher, more curious and determined, if foolhardy, and luckier than she ever imagined. She has personal demons that impact the story as well. A couple of loose ends I am curious about and I would have liked more conversation between Rachel and Hank, and at times the pace could have slowed down a little but I am going to look for her next adventure.Was this review helpful?
