An interesting prequel, given that I haven't read any of the books from the series yet. There wasn't very much to the mystery, even for a short story; but it was a good showcase for how the heroine thinks, so I wasn't really bothered by that. I was a little bothered by the heavy dosage of back story shoehorned into a small space. Reference to that much history in a prequel is almost a little meta. Given my lack of familiarity with the character, though, it may have been better with than without. ...more

I haven't read any of this series, but I thought I'd be okay starting off with a short story marketed as a prequel. With too much mixing of past, present, and future, however, the reading ends up a bit confusing without being effective, especially for someone not familiar with the story. This did introduce me to an intriguing character, however, Miranda Corbie, once an escort now turned spunky PI in period San Francisco, so perhaps I'll have to read the first book at some point.
