Drusilla Thorne (yes, it's a ridiculous name, as the character herself notes), is a refreshing female character who is smart, independent, sexy, and a bad ass, but also flawed, as any interesting detective should be. I am looking forward to reading more about her, and learning where these characters go from here (and where they have been in the past). And if this makes it to my tv, I would happily watch that, too.
The mystery takes a bit of a backseat here and was surprisingly easy to piece together. After reading the first two, I'd expected to engage my brain matter a little more, but the story overall was still an entertaining read. Good showing instead of telling. However, in this one I noticed a few editing boo-boo's, which surprised me given the previous two were so clean. Just a few minor things, but that won't stop me from reading this series.
I look forward to continuing with the next release and will definitely watch for it.
I have nits. Not big enough to cost a star, but nits all the same. One is the author's frequent reminder of how many years she and her sister have been on the move. Yes, yes we get it. I got to a point when she mentioned it my mind said "say it with me, kids..."
Second is, finding out in THIS book, a major flaw in the main character that I felt should have been mentioned previously. It puts several of her actions in perspective. While each book has a stand-alone story, this is the only one that tells that important detail about the main character.
Third, three books and I'm still a little confused as to what exactly is the deal with her step-father. He's important, that's clear, but she makes him sound dangerous and as to why, I never did quite get that.
The last nit is America bashing, but I can live with that as it was only the main character's personal point of view and that's just being in character.
All in all, job well done, Ms Patterson.
editing to add this PS. I just realized this book is labeled Book 2, but after reading Book 1, I came across the Prequel and read that before I read this one. Thus, to me, this is the third book. Apologies for any confusion.
The writing is crisp, the detail is wonderful clear and precise. Drusilla is, well, she's Drusilla, and you just need to sit down, buckle up, and hold on.
So, now, everybody read this one, too. Ms. Patterson may have written a sequel, but I want book 3. Book 3! Book 3! Book 3!
Dear Author, I'm waiting for number 4.
