Currently Accruing Late Charges On This Andaccruing late charges on this and privileges at the porny library have been suspended ntil I can t believe I waited so long to start this series This was my kind of book I loved the character of Jack being both flawed and funny The book was fast paced and easy to read The chapters had an alternating POV which I like and the sections written from the Gingerbread Man were tense and suspenseful I can t wait to read the next book in the series This book was just okay I liked the slightly humorous dialogue between Jack and her partner Herb I liked that Herb seemed to care about Jack I liked Jack shooting pool with Phin and her experience with Lunch Mates There are descriptive violent crimes that might bother some readers but the killer was truly despicable Unless a woman is built like Brienne in Game of Thrones there s no way she continues on after beatings like Jack took I didn t like that Herb was pushed into the background as the crime was about to be solved and he was replaced by Jack s disgustingly grubby former partner Harry now a private investigator I think
