Working with a gang of misfit colleagues (a former zookeeper, a one-time child star, an avant-garde philosopher, and other eccentrics), Amy discovers even more about herself as she detects uncanny parallels between her investigations and her tumultuous love life.« less
This one is very interesting. Is an autobiography by Amy Gray who was a real life private investigator. In this book she documents her cases,crazy co workers,and her life. This book is in a novel form not in a biography format. Very smooth,zany,and hilarious at times!
This book was okay. Gray starts off warning you that the life of a private eye isn't as exciting as people think, and she definitely proved it. She spent little time talking about events relating to her job because most of it was searching computer databases. It felt like the book mainly dealt with her life outside of work (boyfriends, nights at clubs, etc.). She also talked a bit about her inter office relationships. It was entertaining enough. I would have liked a few more anecdotes about being a P.I.
