Plot or Premise
Kinsey is hired to deliver a cashier’s cheque to a 15-year-old, but the client stiffs her on the fee so she hunts for him before delivering it.
What I Liked
There isn’t a lot of mystery early on, just a few simple unanswered questions until a body drops. Now suddenly there’s a murder to solve. The initial premise of the lying client sounded a bit familiar to one of her other novels, but not quite the same, which was good. And while Jonah features in the story, the rest of the ancillary characters are non-existent, leaving the story to run along at a decent pace.
What I Didn’t Like
I never really felt much sympathy or empathy for the murder victim, so it’s hard to get too excited about the case. Overall, most of the characters and the outcomes are all negative, so the whole storyline is rather a downer.
The Bottom Line (★★★☆☆)
An okay but very depressing case
