I found this to be an interesting and easy to read. The story line was well written with enough mystery and twist to keep me reading. The characters were likable. I enjoyed reading and now will go back and read the others in this series. I received this book from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.
A truly enjoyable read. Well written, well paced. This is a P.I. story set in the 1940's when technology was not available as it is today, thus requiring a more believable, old fashioned approach to solving the murder of a Hollywood stripper/actress. While this murder is the main theme, there is an unrelated mystery (not a murder) that adds interest. A good clean story that is not littered with overt sex and violence.
