It seems lately that too many mystery writers are asking me to like characters who are stuck on themselves and their own wealth, totally obnoxious and ugly to even their friends-- or all of the above! Not so "All White Girls."
Big Dick Rickenbacher's looking all over for Hubert Cove's daughter, who bought a bus ticket to Chicago and then disappeared. "All White Girls" revolves around two young women who ran away from home: one found dead but unidentified, and the one Rickenbacher can't find. Enlisting Jesse, a past love, in the search for Katherine Cove, Rickenbacker re-ignites a fire neither one is sure shouldn't have stayed put out! Even in a city the size of Chicago, runaway kids have some things in common, but the connection between these two young women, and a third-- long dead-- sure took me by surprise!!!!
