Book Description

Alex St. James is back. Set in Chicago, the intrepid news researcher takes on two very different cases: a long-forgotten crime that has suddenly come to light, and a criminal who takes advantage of the ill when they're most vulnerable. Alex, her cranky boss, Bass, and the ever-efficient Detective Lulinski work together to seek justice in these quick-read adventures.

While looking into one mystery, our heroine has another mystery to solve. No problem! She's on top of the game. Our hero, a detective, helps as needed. You need to keep up and go for the ride. Am sure you'll enjoy how the heroine convinced her boss to let her do the assignment she wants. I always give books a plus when the language is not vulgar or filled with cussing. This book is good reading, no need to cringe as you read the story.

This is the type of reading I like to do when on vacation. something short, with a plot and with good characters. This met my expectations.

Excellent short story from this author. Makes me want to find more, but longer reads! If you like a quick mystery this could be for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars My World January 19, 2013

All of the books written by this author are completely enjoyable. Normally I don't read short stories but since Julie Hyzy was the author I made an exception. The stories were fun and well written, except for one of them. It wasn't to my taste so didn't finish it. The "White House" books that she has written are my very favorites.
