It's been awhile since I read a new series that I can actually rave about, that's better than just "okay." This is that series. It's about a NYC policewoman named Filomena Buscarsela. She's Ecuadoran born and is just a "lowly" patrol cop, playing the game and jumping through the hoops she needs to jump through so she can make detective. Her coping mechanisms aren't always the best and her life is a bit of a mess, but she's a very likable human being. The writing style sucked me right in to the story and I found this book very hard to put down. Excellent!

Contemporary detective novel about NYPD cop Filomena Buscarsela. Booklist says, "It's packed with enough mayhem and atmosphere for two novels." (And indeed it is!) Good One!

I liked this character. Plot was kind of weak, but I ordered the sequel......the character is interesting.
