What a book!! Even better than the first in the series, which I also thought was great. I loved everything about it! Although I have to say I was a bit disappointed there weren't any short hot sex scenes in this book like the first one. I see what you're doing Lepionka, making me wait for it!!

Okay but seriously PI Roxane Weary is definitely one of my favourite fictional characters now. I also loved the complex characterization of her on-again off-again girlfriend Catherine, her (sort of?) ex Tom, a queer teen girl befriended in book 1, and all the secondary characters. This detective plot was complicated, layered, and a little hard for me to keep track of at times--keeping me on my toes! Murder and fraud!

I recently submitted an article listing queer fictional book characters I wanted to date, and I am kicking myself for not including Roxane. What was I thinking!? She'll have to go on the next list.
