OK - it was free so I get what I deserve. This detective novel has all sorts of issues. Do I need to know how the main character deals with his dinner plate after eating? Do I need to know which streets he drives down in Palm Springs since these will only mean something to someone living there? It seems padded (and it’s a short novel). It was also pretty easy to predict who the perpetrator was – especially if you read a lot of detective fiction. Don't bother with it.
