Then there is the fact it seems to be written in third person but from time to time it shifts to first person. It purports to take place in Dallas but as a long time native I don't think the author had much feel for the city or for the state for that matter. He did get one thing right we do have a lot of transplants from the east coast. So his east coast mobsters are at least plausible. However his restaurant would probably be more likely to be found in Vegas.
The purported main character Rebecca came off rather two dimensional and the male author didn't seem to capture her voice. Oddly enough he didn't seem to capture male character's either.
So in essence not bad, not good, glad it was free.
What's wrong about the book is the dull and sometimes plodding writing - especially at the denouement when long passages are offered to make sense of things. The book is readable, however, and since Naked Frame is the first in a promised series of Rebecca Ranghorn books, I think it likely that author Robinson will find a way to refine his style, add detailed description, give more life to his dialogue and fill out his characters.
Well, she's pretty darn certain SHE didn't do it and thus, she's been framed. The story is pretty action packed, never a dull moment as the bodies start piling up and it becomes a major whodunit.
What I liked: I was never bored. This isn't one of those 400 page novels in which 100 pages of it are full of long descriptive details.
What I didn't like: The lack of emotion in the characters. Um, your shop, your business, your clothes have all burned down. A little more reation would be appropriate in instances like that. I guess you call that character developement. It just needed a bit more of that.
