Plot or Premise
Two deaths get Kinsey off and running – the apparent mugging death of a low-rent private investigator known for cutting corners and a John Doe homeless guy who died with Kinsey’s business address in his pocket.
What I Liked
Kinsey gets involved with the homeless friends of the dead guy, and Felix, Pearl and Dandy are great to read about. She finds out who he was, locates some personal effects, a safety deposit box and a will…and the will has a plot twist the size of Everest. It is flat-out AWESOME. And Kinsey picks up some cousins.
What I Didn’t Like
The mystery takes a long time to get to the end, when the cause is obvious pretty fast.
The Bottom Line
Great plot twist, too long a story for what’s there.
