I particularly loved the bag lady's hex. And your one liners: "...he felt as out of place as an opera fan at a monster truck rally." And, "Cleon raising his voice was about as common as Mother Theresa participating in wet tee shirt contests." I never tired of the sexual innuendo, as with "He stopped, turned around, and found a gun pointing at his crotch." And "[You don't like me] because my IQ isn't lower than my bust size?"
You also did your homework on personal finance, such as the Title 31 provisions against "smurfing." And you even identified the penalties for an "aggravated case." Did you have an earlier incarnation as a stockbroker?
There may be one or two plot elements that might have been handled differently, such as how Tim could have been in position to save Maggie from the bus yet not have seen her assailant. But, overall, I'm glad I tracked down "A Tax Deductable Death" from the reference on your editor's website.
I'm ordering your second book, "To Give or To Deceive," today. And, honestly, girl; keep 'em coming.
Maggie is a nice person who becomes morality-challenged through unforseen life circumstances. Tim is a fine example of what the average federal employee is like - just trying to do a good job and getting no public credit for it. A mild romance between them finally starts to develop by the end of the book, but it wasn't the primary focus of the book. This book begs the question, what would you do if you had access to all that money?
I'm looking forward to further books by Ms. Terreri.
Looking forward to the next book - hope Maggie's the star in it as well!
