I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This is a very classicly dark noir feeling PI story. There is a uniqueness in the paraplegic female lead, but the overall feeling is very familiar.
AyJay is a very strong character. She’s very capable of looking after herself, and has a quip or one-liner for every situation. At times it felt a little overdone, but overall, she was entertaining.
The plotline has a very twists and turns that were not easily guessed. Partly because the connections between things were very hidden, and partly because I enjoyed just going with the flow, without trying to guess what was coming.
Overall, if you enjoy noir style mysteries, I’d suggest taking a peek at this story. The main character is a very strong, albeit physically handicapped, woman who knows how to get things done.
