Recommends it for: Fans of Sue Grafton/ lighter mystery readers
This is a fun mystery with colorful, likeable characters. Using very short chapters, the story moves quickly with lots of new clues dropped in regularly. Takes place in the Chicago area and is about urban sprawl, something we Chicagoans see and hear about regularly. Read-alike author would be Sue Grafton. Light, pleasant read with suspense, but no real fear.

A well connected developer wants to turn Emerald Woods into a strip mall. Only one young woman stands in his way and she has been arrested and threatened. She turns to the Wild Onion Detective Agency for help - but can a small agency fight corporate greed.
This is a good mystery with some surprises. Walker deserves a big following.
