A String of Beads by Thomas Perry (2015) – BR00198 (2021) – 🐸🐸🐸🐸⚪
Plot or Premise
Jane is asked by the elders of her tribe to find an innocent man charged with murder and to help him until things are cleared up.
What I Liked
The introduction of the elders was a great development, and showed that Jane’s work has not gone unnoticed by the clans. They not only are aware of it, they approve and ask her to put her skills to use with another member, a childhood friend of Jane’s.
What I Didn’t Like
The secondary characters didn’t work that well for me…a woman whose story reads like a bad rape fantasy, a cop who happens to be an expert tracker and who happens to follow her despite having no idea who she is or any evidence he sees her, and some crooks who are okay, but not compelling.
The Bottom Line
Average story raised up by the initial clients.
