Really entertaining. I've only read one other book of Mina's (Deception) and Garnethill was way better. Good mystery, interesting characters. Can't wait to read the rest in the series.

The book description got my attention and I was looking forward to reading this book. I read 124 pages before deciding it was a waste of time. Uninteresting characters, with uninteresting lives, with an irritating writing style. Sorry I wasted a credit on this rather trashy novel.

Big disappointment, I knew in the first 50 pages it would be boring, didn't like the style of writing and didn't like the format of the writing. The story just didn't seem to unfold very fast and kind of left me just waiting for an interesting page to keep me going but nothing happened to spark my interest. No more by this author!

Very disturbing murder mystery with a lot of real life grit. Also has a very heavy depiction of the aftermath of sexual abuse - a great, but chilling, read.

From the book back: "A groundbreaking book that should help finally establish women writers as a credible faction within the hard-boild genre...Its emotional rawness and visceral honesty pack a punch more potent than any boxer-turned-PI could provide." Washington Post
