In Big TroubleFar from Balti deep in a world of good time music old fashioned ambition and rich people's games For Tess must find out what happened to a man she thought she knew to a woman who may have changed him forever and to the victims of a killer who dances to a different and deadly drumm Another weak entry Plot was OK if preposterous but some of the nuts and bolts writing is just weak which is depressing Also I'm never really convinced by Tess's romantic notions and how they play out It's all a bit sub par and I've already ordered the next two in the series

Ned how to survive and thrive on the streets of Balti But a new case will force her to confront her own past and a man she loved and lost It starts when she gets a newspaper photograph of her old boyfriend with a tantalizing shard of headline attached In Big Trouble The answers lie I'm not sure Tess's sexuality is consistent with her character in other aspects of her life She's 30 years old having success as a private detective and seems to have good relationships with her family Her approach to her own sexuality and the actions of others seems like a 19 year old just striking out Maybe it's that she doesn't have male friends and all her interactions with men include sexual overtones Male characters have been doing that for forever but that's exactly why I've greatly limited reading mysteries with male protagonists I hope she finds a friend in the next bookNot very challenging
