Killing the Ann Arbor guy was satisfying. A job well done. Her history showed no patience with child molesters. No regrets, no remorse. It had always been that way.
No regrets, no remorse? And she's fighting the good cause? Is that even humanly possible? Well, for her it is. She is a loner and --to talk about contradictions-- she leads a double life, and she has a very good friend, Oscar; whom she helps with his sculptures and his little art gallery, and when it comes to that with his investigations. He doesn't know her secret, nobody does, and that's for the best, because if he did he could find himself in harm's way.
Oscar provided the perfect cover at first for Sydney, but not before too long he became her lover, and then an ex-lover, and now they are best friends. He's the only person in the world that she cares about and she'd do anything to protect him, even put herself in the line of fire.
Her buddy, though an artist, is not as helpless as one would think. He doesn't scare easily and when it comes to taking matters into his own hands he rises to the challenge; the challenge this time being to investigate the murder of a sleazy lawyer for which Roy, Oscar's old partner and friend, had been arrested.Read more ›
No Regrets, No Remorse is a A Sydney Simone Mystery.
I was wondering if I would like the character Sydney because of her business. She is a human pest control. Sydney checks out the people she is supposed to get rid of and makes sure they are bad guys. Sydney has no remorse for killing them.
She works off a internet site and no one is suppossed to know who and where she lives.
Sydney helps at a art gallery, law office for her exboyfriend. She also lives in apartment in the building.
Oscar Leopold is a sculpture artist and part time lawyer. He uses Sydney as a model a lot. He really does not like to answer his phone for either business. After a few times the phone ringing Sydney gets up from modeling to answer the phone. The first few times it rang she let her boss talk her out of answering.
The call was from Roy his ex-law partner and he is in jail for murdering his boss Jack. His boat was blown up with him on board.
Oscar and Sydney go to the jail to visit Roy and hear his story. Roy was also seeing
Jack's wife and had a fight with him days before his death.
Sydney took a case to kill someone but before she could someone else beat her to the job. Sydney does not give refunds. She should be able to be safe from the person who hired her from finding her. He leaves her a message that she could kill a different crooked lawyer for the money she already has been paid for.
Thier are a lot of twists and turns before the ending of the novel. I was surprised at how much I ended up liking Sydney and Oscar. Sydney is such a strong character, she is tough,rides a motorcycle,teases Oscar, she knows computers,guns,karate, as her own moral guide lines.Read more ›
Oscar asks his former lover (and roommate), Sydney Simone to help him with the defense. Sydney hides from Oscar that she runs Human Pest Control, which lives up it its name as an exterminator of two legged rodents. In fact she just completed a job in Michigan. The case turns convoluted when Roy is implicated in a vast insurance scam that has Oscar under investigation too.
This is a fast-paced thriller with legal and kick butt action. With her different morality (sort of mindful of Beth Riesgraf's Parker in Leverage) Sydney steals the show as she takes no prisoners in her secret endeavor and in protecting Oscar the wuss. Though none of the cast is likable, fans will enjoy No Regrets, No Remorse due to the anti-heroine whose attitude brings freshness to the genre.
