really liked it

Recommended to Vivisection by: my lj friend cher
Recommended for: anyone who likes the female private investigator novels
Read in July, 2008

I had to start this book 3 times and was sure I wasn't going to like it. I love the female private investigator genre and felt that Tess Monaghan didn't have quite the flair of say VI Warshawski or Kathy Mallory.

Third time's the charm. Tess and her lovely city of Baltimore grew on me as did the cast of subordinate characters--especially her aunt, Kitty and her co-worker Crow. I am particularly pleased to see that like all detectives, Tess keeps to a strict exercise routine, but she is not afraid to indulge in the vices of alcohol, weed and men.

I am on my way to pick up more Tess Monaghan novels on my errands today!
