Publisher's Summary

Book Two of the Shirley Combs and Dr. Mary Watson series, The Illustrious Client, shows us the private investigator and her sidekick sharing an office, and introduces their receptionist, Lix.
They are hired to influence a young international pop star, Oceane Charles, to pry her away from her older, richer, player of a girlfriend. The cast is made up of people with various ethnicities and backgrounds, and of course the job soon includes solving a murder mystery. Along the way, Mary discovers her latent lesbianism.
Set in Portland, Oregon, on a superyacht, in a hospital VIP room, at Rose Festival, and other fun places.

Mediocrity Reigns

This is a mediocre work at best. The characters in most cases lack two dimensions; much less three. The narrator doesn't help the effort any with a delivery flatter than Kansas. The lead characters are just as flat and the erstwhile protagonist is a blur. If this selection finds it's way into the sale bin or as a daily deal you might want to take the chance and give it a shot. I found this one a total dud and a work lacking any reason for recommendation.
