Our copy of the hardback was just 150 pages long, so it wasn't too long nor too complicated a tale. There seemed to be few recurring support characters and most of the story took place in California, but away from home base in San Francisco. The plot featured a couple of murders and some older questionable deaths spiced things up a little, but in general we found the book, while reasonably enjoyable, a little lackluster by modern standards. We might be inclined to check out a more recent work and see if that might be more satisfying before reading the set from the start forward. So -- not bad, but a rather typical entree in the female private eye genre...
The mystery is both simple and complex. How so? When the killer is unveiled, it wasn't anyone I'd put on my list (the surprise) but I kicked myself for not considering that person (in hindsight, there had been enough clues).
I listened to the unabridged audiotape of this book, narrated by a woman named Dunn. It may be a matter of personal taste but I found her narration to be technically correct but so flat in emotion that I suspect it detracted from my enjoyment of the book. I'll be reading the paper versions in the future.
