it was ok

Faye Quick, steno turned sleuth when her boss shipped out to fight in WWII, has taken over the agency. She had already solved two murder cases when this novel opens.

Taking on a missing person's case at the request of Claire Turner, Quick tries to find Turner's boyfriend, Private Charlie Ladd. Instead, she finds a body that is *not* Charlie and the case becomes filled with twists and herrings.

Most of the characters speak as you would expect, but Faye's speech is filled with stereotypical PI lingo and I found this a bit off putting. She also says "yer" a lot; she's originally from New Jersey and has lived in New York City.

I wanted to give this 3 stars, but am only giving it two because of the way Faye speaks.
