This book was a quick and easy read. While the story wasn't super sophisticated, it has a great storyline and plot line. I would have liked more depth into the characters but hopefully the next books will show more.
When Kyle King gets fed up with the behind-the-times police department, he quits and starts a private investigations firm with a geeky computer nerd partner. Their first case deals with a troll who is writing vicious statements against an aging actress.
That’s about it and though a good plot, doesn’t fully develop or have much to it because the story is pretty short. (Only 27 pages on my epub version).
Kyle King: cop (at the beginning before he quits), drives a Chevy, slightly built frame, 30s
Ally: 20s, wears glasses
Jane Lake: 70s, actress, fit
Cherida Lake: Jane’s daughter, 30s, has a daughter
Anthony Lyons: Jane’s manager, 50s, greying hair
Some typical characters. I did enjoy the camaraderie between Kyle and Allie. Kyle is more into the technology side and Ally is more into the self-promoting social media side. It was interesting that as a computer nerd, she didn’t know about Bitcoins.
Pretty standard and each voice fit the character. There were some B-movie bits here and there but for the most part, okay.
As mentioned, a short story. Little action and not enough computer investigation, not enough drawing out of details, not enough suspects, not enough meat. I won’t play spoiler, but I guessed the culprit from the moment the character entered the story. I think this story could have been drawn out, developed and the result would have been a cooler more enjoyable story. Maybe the next story in the series…
As they both receive their first mission from a celebrity they realize that they have their hands full. The celebrity in question is having a problem with an online bully that is sending threats and is trolling the celebrity.
I initially thought that this book was not going to intrigue me. The concept of cyberspace and it being connecting to any serious crime seemed a little off reach to me however, the author really managed to convince me that if push does come to shove, then your life really can be affected by it.
I particularly liked how the book used term phrases like “keyboard warriors” as a reference to people who believe that they face no consequences, by typing behind their keyboards and that they are untouchable.
I found the literary standard to be well written. The content had a steady flow and the connectivity between the chapters and the paragraphs were well thought out. I believe that the book would benefit from more description and character backstory. Otherwise, I highly recommend this book for anyone that is looking for a thriller fiction with a hint of romance.
The world has changed and so has its crimes. I believe that the plot was original and that this author has great potential in producing well-written tales.

This book was a quick and easy read. It had a good storyline but could have used more depth to it. I also would have liked to have seen more expansion into the background of the characters. However, having said all of that I will look for the next book from Mr. Price to read.
