Buried On Avenue B
Peter De Jonge

My "in a nutshell" summary...

An old crime is reinvestigated with new outcomes.

My thoughts after reading this book...

Yummy, marvy, loved my intro to Detective Darlene!  She is matter of fact, curious, sort of enchanting and probably likes to drink a little too much.  But she is one heck of a detective!  I loved  her sticktoitiveness...but of course that is what gives her these mad detective skills.  And...this is a murder gone is not what it is supposed to be and it takes over Detective O'Hara's life.  As with any review of a mystery it's completely impossible to share the main events.  But know that it sort of begins with a rumor and just unravels into this amazing  series of events...with twists and turns,  the involvement of skateboarders, the elderly and gypsies!  It was very difficult to stop reading...I wanted to savor the events but it was just too exciting!

What I loved about this book...

I must say I loved Detective Darlene O'Hara...her son Axel dog...and her police personality.
I loved the short chapters.  I loved the satire.  I loved the action.

What I didn't love...

Drawing a blank here...I loved this yummy book!

Final thoughts...

I wish I would have read the first book but it's on my wish list and I will get to it soon.  If you love a fabulous mystery with a great main character with an edgy attitude...this is the series for you!
