A lawyer hires the Dugan’s, a husband and wife crime-fighting team, to find a friend of a missing client. When that friend turns up dead in an adult bookstore this simple case becomes more complicated and dangerous.

The reading group rated this book 5.

Everyone enjoyed this book. The story held their interest and they always like books where the story takes place in Chicago. They also liked the fact that you were left guessing who did it till the end!

I got this book as one of the free Kindle books that Amazon offers. I don't think I would have spent money to buy it, but overall I thought it was ok. Parts of the story were a bit much for me, but I found it enjoyable at times.

Meh! Mediocre story, mediocre characters, but I did read it to the end.
2.5 stars.
This is what happens when you need to rely on Kindle freebies and super cheapies!

It was OK. Not the best, not the worst.

a perfectly okay mystery novel, practically dripping with adequacy.

Can't say I won't read another in the series, but I won't go out of my way to do so.
