Young Adult that Appeals to Adults as Well
This is a very entertaining novel set in the post-war period. It's a coming of age story with a young woman protagonist, a missing mother and her wounded PI father.
The characters are well developed and the mysteries run on several levels. Neither childish nor California Noir, it's a comfortable middle ground and, hopefully, the start of a series.
It's good to listen to a book that doesn't rely on horrific crime, the latest societal 'hot topics, and doesn't read like an action movie screenplay.
This one is more of a timeless, old fashioned story, but with greater depth than the actual 'coming of age' mysteries actually written in the 1950s.
