The combination of a private detective, Broadway star and German Shephard investigating a series of murders made for an intriguing and enjoyable read.
All are extremely likeable characters, and the author describes them in increasing depth as the mystery unfolds.
At times, the story felt just a little predictable but, in the end, the reveal was just a bit of a surprise. The scene is set for more adventures.
With thanks to #Netgalley and Gail Meath for my advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review,
From the back cover:
It’s all fun and games, until someone gets killed.
AN INDIEBRAG MEDALLION HONOREE
Meet Jax Diamond, a sharp, sophisticated, skilled, no-nonsense private detective. Or is he? Glued to his side is his canine partner, Ace, a fierce and unrelenting German Shepherd whose mere presence terrorizes criminals into submission. Well, maybe not.
But the two of them are a whole lot smarter than they look. And they have their hands full when a playwright’s death is declared natural causes, and his new manuscript worth a million bucks is missing.
Laura Graystone, a beautiful rising Broadway star, is dragged into the heart of their investigation, and she’s none too happy about it. Especially when danger first strikes, and she needs to rely on her own ingenuity to save their hides.
Join Jax, Laura and Ace on a fun yet deadly ride during the Roaring Twenties that takes twists and turns, and a race against time to find the real murderer before he/she/they stop them permanently.
