This was fantastic. I loved the mystery, I loved the suspense, I loved the characters. A new favourite crime tackling heroine for sure.

Roxane is totally badass. And a total hot mess. She has no idea if she's coming or going and I was digging it. I felt really sorry for her. She's struggling with her dad's death - they had a messy relationship and she's not sure how to resolve her grief for both what was and what could have been. She's sleeping with her dad's ex partner except he's now moving on to new people. And her old love, Catherine (who frankly is a manipulative bitch and reminds me of the character from Chicago Fire that screws with Leslie Shay), is back on the scene having sort of left her husband? It's all messing with her head something shocking.

Between that she's finding she's having a little bit of a drinking problem and her bank account has pretty much been emptied from months of not working. It sounds like a mess and it is until her brother recommends his friend come see her about a detective gig. Danielle's brother was convicted of murdering his girlfriend and her parents and his execution date has finally been set. But Danielle is convinced she just saw his girlfriend Sarah at a gas station - alive and well. She hires Roxanne to look into it. And that's when things get interesting.

I loved the fast pace of the mystery and Roxanne was brave and tenacious. The more crimes Roxanne uncovered the faster I flew through the pages. It was fantastic. It was well plotted and I had no idea who the criminal was. The resolution was awesome. I can't wait to read more Roxanne. 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5.

Sometimes hard to keep all characters straight. Engaging story.
