A Nick Sibelius Mystery, Book Two
Rating: 3 cups
PI Nick Sibelius is in dire need of money to keep his PI business afloat. Money is the sole reason he takes on Dan Hoyt's vandalism case despite Nick's misgivings.
A simple open and shut case making easy money evolves into a sociopath named Charity hell-bent on ruining Hoyt and killing Nick. Additionally, Hoyt's business partner, Izzy, is delving into unethical practices which may also include betraying a major drug cartel, contaminating Austin's water supply, and killing Hoyt.
Along with his new partner, Theresa, and an ex-flame from homeland security, Mary Lou, Nick is in a race against time to save everyone's lives and Austin's water supply by thwarting Izzy from executing his plan which is in its final stages. Will Nick succeed?
This was interesting book which was at times tacky, a little disturbing and other times, entertaining and fast-paced. In short, it kept me involved until the end. The current use of Internet, especially Facebook, shown in this story was pretty disturbing, but I did find Charity's character very fascinating and I especially loved what she did in the end. All the characters are close to real in the sense they are human with all their flaws, and I did not at any time only just hate or like them. The feelings kept changing for all the characters as the story unfolded. If you like a light mystery with lots of creative twists and a touch of romance, you will definitely enjoy this one.
