~Even in such a short story, there was a good twist to the plot. I enjoyed the author’s style of writing. The story moved right along . I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a light…but not a cozy…mystery
I loved the mystery and suspense, but most of all I loved the humor in which all of Hartoin's books are written. I had a hard time imagining Mercy with Marilyn Monroe's face throughout all the books. Couldn't think of a ditzy blonde as a nurse and a private investigator, but I guess that is what makes the books so interesting...to expect the unexpected.
I believe I finished all the books in about four days. These books are those that bother and irritate if you have to quit to do something else and make you stay up into the wee hours reading them.
The story line was pretty good with just the right amount of twists, right down to the pun in the title. A guy goes missing after a girl he's involved with is drugged and abandoned and then brutally assaulted. Everyone wants to know what part the missing beau had to play in the girl's attack, since he was the last one she was seen with before the violence ensued.
I'm pretty good at solving tv and movie crimes and mysteries, so I wasn't disappointed when I figured out "who done it" before the big reveal... beside it was still a pretty good reveal. This is a great read for sitting in waiting rooms, traffic, or any other waiting scenario. I think this is a good short read for any mature teen, pending parental approval, and adult who wants an easy read filled with suspense.
In this short story, Mercy was working undercover at a bar and commented on how much worse her feet hurt because she was on her feet more as a waitress than as a nurse. I've been a nurse for many years. The floor nurses put in twelve hour shifts and if they're lucky they get a thirty minute lunch and can sit down, but other than that, they are usually on their feet so I had trouble believing she was on her feet less.
The plot could've been developed a little better and maybe if it had been, the areas that felt rushed would've flowed better.
It was a freebie and much better than many of the free books I've downloaded. The author has a good writing style and does create compelling characters.
Mercy is a realistic and believable character who idolizes her parents. Even if she's not in the mood (exhausted or injured), when they ask her to do something, she can't refuse them...although there may be a bit of guilt-tripping in there, even if the majority of it is in her head.
Great story! Glad I found this series.

Mercy is a young wet behind the ear investigator, working part time for her dad.
This adventure gives you a taste of what to expect in the following books.
I felt it was missing that edge of surprise and the romance element.
But still this an east read and will entertain some book readers.
A short story with a good plot, and easy to read and follow...
