I know this isn't much of a literary critique. I could go on about plot, pace, realism, and stuff like that, but a. I'd be making it all up, because I'm not a critic and b. the reason I'm reading the second installment tonight is that I care so much about the characters in the first. I want an opportunity to spend more time with them.

The main drawback this held for me was the language. That could have been toned down a bit for my preferences but unfortunately this does seem to be the trend in most modern books. But I'm a good skimmer so it was easy for me to bypass these parts and still enjoy the storyline and I will say that it did have a lot less than some of the other books I've read recently. Your call on that, just want you to be aware that it's there.
Overall, I'd read it again AND I'll be snagging the next one in the series as soon as it hits the market.
The plot is really fairly straightforward at its foundation: Amber is hired to find information on a dodgy foreclosure. But it turns out to be a far more twisty and convoluted situation than that. There are corrupt cops, Russian mobsters and gang kids, plots and plans and deals and deception on all sides. Yes, --all-- sides -- even Amber herself steps over into the shadowy side of legal at times.
I enjoyed it enough as an e-book that I'm planning on buying a dead-tree edition. This is a book that rates shelf space.
