Departure lounge

I do like it when an author changes direction and gets it right first time. This book is the first of a crime series and as such marks a departure for. The usual satire. I was a little apprehensive at first bit this book bubbles and boils its way through to a satisfying conclusion with just enough to keep things open for future books.

Jasmine sharp is an assistant to her uncle Jim sharp in his private eye business. She finds herself embroiled with a drug war, feuding police and a decades old secret.

I liked it. It’s typically well observed and perfectly pitched.
