Two sisters.

One deadly secret.

No time to lose.

PI Jamie Rush has her hands full with small-time skip-tracing and surveillance jobs in Port Alene, Texas. The work is steady, though she still struggles to make ends meet. But when her partner, Cookie, brings in a low-paying and potentially time-consuming case, Jamie takes it on out of loyalty.

Cookie’s childhood friend, Renata,

Nicely done

The only thing better than a new Jamie Rush mystery is being able to tell others about it. Terrific series and a nicely done follow-up to the first-in-series. The titles can be read as standalones, but do yourself a favor and read them in order to get a full sketch of the characters. Now I'm going to go iron a Hawaiian shirt--you'll understand why when you read the book.

I received a gifted copy and am providing a review.
While reading this book the character Jamie Rush seemed very familiar to me. I still haven’t figured out why, but the relationship she and Cookie have is one of respect and friendship. Those two things are important considering they are business partners. They are in the business of tracing down skips for repossession. Skips are those folks who have … wait for it … skipped out on payments of one sort or another. This book centers around Renata’s

This is a novel for readers who like the focus on characters rather than action or suspense. There is basically no suspense in the novel except for one quick scene near the end. Jamie, and her sidekick Cookie, do some investigating but more of the narrative deals with their personal interactions than work on the case. There is also a bit about the adversarial relationship Jamie has with her parents. My favorite aspect of this novel was the setting of Port Alene, Texas. Oles has done a good job o ...more

"Depths of Deceit" is the second novel by Laura Oles featuring PI/skiptracer Jamie Rush and her business partner, Cookie. In this adventure, Rush and Cookie look for a missing woman who may have connections to local organized crime in the Port Alene, Texas, area. Along the way, they encounter some stiff competition from another PI, Alistair Finn

While it's not necessary to read the first in the series - "Daughters of Bad Men" - it is helpful to understand for background. For example, it may seem

I can't wait for the next one!!!

I really enjoyed the first book of this series (Daughyers of Bad Men) as these characters were introduced and drew me in...but WOW! If that first one was 5 stars, this one is 10 stars!! I thoroughly enjoyed this one so very much and wish it wasn't over. The main characters really need to be my friends. Seriously. I need that quick wit in my life. I can't count how many times I literally laughed out loud at their snarky comments back and forth...but I was also int

I’m a sucker for great characters, and Laura Oles’ latest release, Depths of Deceit brings back two of my favorites with PI Jamie Rush and her partner Cookie. What makes this second outing of the Jamie Rush Mysteries even better is the author crafts a a smartly paced, compelling storyline that does her characters justice. I’m already looking forward to the next one!
