It was a cute story. Very simple to understand. It is about a private investigator in NYC who comes in contact with a homeless woman who is dying and a very wealthy woman and how their lives intertwined. I enjoyed it. It is short and easy to read.

What a fantastic book. The perfect amount of suspension for me - not too tense. The suspension is also very consistent throughout the book, making it even better. Definitely suggested.
