Black Current

Jaymie Zarlin is a PI in Santa Barbara, California. One morning, she gets a phone call from her friend (well. a bit more than just a friend) Zave. Zave has the info on a job- and thinks that Jaymie would be a good person for it. Jaymie, at first, is hesitant. It’s 5:30 in the morning and who really wants to get out of bed… But a $1,000 bucks and knowing that will help pay the

This is such a good book. Distinct characters, complex mystery, great dialogue, and answers that are logical but not obvious. Most unusual, the writing is terrific.

The core storyline of this murder mystery is solidly structured and developed, so much so that it's nearly impossible to determine whodunit from a very limited number of suspects.

Looking forward to the next installment in this series. Great characters and good storyline in the first two .
This is the second book in a very exciting new series. Like the first book, the story winds through developing relationships & offers up surprising twists when this reader thought she had things nailed. The mix of occasional humor with heartache adds interest & makes the characters feel more engaging. I'll look forward to the next installment!
