    PI Jamie Rush and her best friend and partner, PI Cookie are pulled into Jamie s family problems She grew up with a father who was a con man her half brother joined that life and now is calling Jamie to find his daughter, Kristen, who has also participated in some potentially dangerous scams.Jamie has changed her life and only works on this side of legal As much as she really has nothing to do with her family, she finds it hard to ignore her brother s request for help.Things change when she does find Kristen Kristen is dead of an overdose although Jamie knows she was clean She finds a crumpled up 2 bill in her back pocket the calling card of a drug family.So who, exactly, killed Kristen Was this is warning to someone else in the family What was Kristen into that someone felt compelled to kill her As Jamie begins to dig into Kristen s life, she finds her nieces secrets That truth will put a target on Jamie s and Cookie s backs.This is an exceptional debut novel This is not a gritty police procedural it is not a cozy, but somewhere in between There is no romance rather the love Jamie has for her chosen family Cookie, who lives in Hawaiian shirts, Erin, the bookie s daughter, Marty who runs a bar and Deuce an extremely lovable and spoiled 4 footed, furry friend.The book is well written, with wonderful characte...

    I liked this book Jamie displays strength and intelligence This really is a fast read There was plenty of action to keep the storyline moving along at a good pace The only thing is that as much as I did enjoy this book and the lead character, I had a bit of trouble connecting with the rest of the characters within the story Therefore, it does not matter ho...

    Pivotal to Laura Oles s debut novel, Daughters of Bad Men, is the sense of place and people that permeates this gritty crime thriller Set in Port Alene, a mythicized version of the Texas coastal city of Port Aransas, which is only a three hour drive away from where she lives in Texas Hill Country, the setting holds an especially dear place in the author s heart, especially in view of it having suffered so badly from the depredations of Hurricane Harvey As befits the darker world of Daughters of Bad Men, however, the town takes on a murkier side in the form of the challenges faced by its deeply conflicted characters, not least of which is the emotionally troubled skip tracer, Jamie Rush.Rush wishes to have as little as possible to do with her nefarious family, most specifically her estranged brother, Brian, that is, until he literally begs her to help find her missing niece, Kristen When she very quickly does, what she finds catapults the lead protagonists into a situation that becomes tumultuous by the minute, and one that tears at the very heart strings of the otherwise fairly close knit Port Alene community Oles clearly feels very deeply for her fictional characters, on whose lives and adventures she intends to e...

    I received a copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley.Jamie and Cookie run a PI agency although goodness knows how they make any money, given their willingness to take a week off to work for free and use their skills when Jamie s estranged half brother Brian asks her to find his daughter Kristin Brian is a con man and he cut off contact with Jamie when she tried to persuade Kristin to leave her father and go straight Things I liked about this novel the title is excellent the plot makes sense and is easy to follow.Things I liked less there is a fair amount of repetition and many places where a paragraph really hammers home a point which could just as easily have been expressed in a single sentence poor Deuce of whom we heard far too much surely leads the unhealthiest lifestyle of any dog ever and I also wish Jamie or Cookie would eat a vegetable or a piec...
