From the beginning, I decided that I liked the heroine, Sydney, and that never changed. She's a female who never gives up. And her partner in this book, Marco, is a real alpha male with a wonderful human quality and a way that makes a woman feel great. He'd be the kind of guy every gal would love to come home to. Then you add a fantastic setting like Lake Tahoe and a murderer who loves to kill people and make it look like suicide and you have the fixings for a good story. Add in extras like a real lion to add conflict plus the talent of a first-rate author and then lots more conflict, and now you've now upped it to a VERY good story. No question - 5 stars!!
Well, not quite all. Four of them are still standing when the gun smoke drifts away. Lots of loose threads and a suspenseful loose end.
The characters are two dimensional and there's no relationship or character development. Kora is the only almost-three dimensional character. What happened after the shooting at the fish farm? It just disappeared in the rear-view mirror. All this mayhem is going on and nobody notices?
The book is mostly well written, which is why I finished it, but I kept waiting for the characters to become real; they didn't.
It also should have been proof read - eg, Sydney wore "rubber goulashes" (overcooked?), someone got kneed "in the crouch" (nice of him to make it easier), "Corbin slumped, listless, in a chair" (after being killed, he could only have been lifeless).
If you like violent action movies, you'll enjoy this, otherwise give it a miss.
Former DA Investigator Sydney Jessup gets a job in a fish hatchery trying to control an outbreak of Ich in the fish. She lost her job because she investigated some monied characters who are determined to convert Lake Tahoe into another Las Vegas. An attempt on her life at the hatchery goes awry and she is on the run from her would be killer and on the trail of his "employers". Twists and turns abound in this well crafted mystery and they will keep you turning the pages until the end (or is it the end?) All in all a 5 star book
