In the first half the plot gently meanders, giving the reader the opportunity to get to know the characters, the neighbourhood and get the flavour of the Coachella Valley where the story is set. In the second half the pace picks up, bringing the story to a satisfying conclusion.
Jessica, the only child of wealthy parents, returns to her childhood home to celebrate her forthcoming divorce and seek the comfort of her old housekeeper, Bernadette. Waking with a hangover and a vague recollection of the previous evenings' events she learns her friend returned home to discover her husband murdered. Armed with little more than a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes, a black Amex card and a good heart, Jessica sets off to support her friend and "get to the bottom of things." Unravelling the mystery leads her to discover marital infidelities, financial disasters and into the murky and dangerous world of Russian gangsters.
As a life-long tomboy with zero fashion sense, I generally prefer mysteries a little grittier but I found this book an entertaining and engaging read. Well-written and good fun.
And once Jessica's rich world has been trodden on she must put on her detective shoes as a lawyer and discover why her best friend's husband has been brutally murdered in their home. Here the author excels at wringing every emotion to fully explain just how terrible a violent loss can be to family and friends. But the violence doesn't stop there as Jessica delves deeper into the seedy underworld of organized crime and those who flit around its fringes. Not your usual hard-nosed, hard-boiled detective thriller, more your Gucci loafer, Cristal kind of work.
This reader had a hard time putting down this superior detective thriller seen from the POV of a woman in no way trained to handle the toughness needed. Every chapter brought fresh information like a detective's report piecing together a maelstrom of unfathomable clues. A masterpiece of detective writing made all he more brilliant by this great author's talent.
FIVE STAR detective thriller and very highly recommended.
