And Then She Was Gone (The Clarke Lantham Mysteries)

Disgraced former cop Clarke Lantham doesn’t mind making his living as a PI. He doesn’t mind the long hour, living in his office, or even dealing with bill collectors, because it keeps him in the city–as close to heaven as he’s ever likely to get.

Fortunately, the world needs private detectives. Unfortunately for Lantham, on this particular Saturday morning, “the world” consists of a fretful mother with a missing daughter, and the place he has to go look for her has a name every bit as ominous as hell: Suburbia.

With only a teenager’s blog and diaries to go on, and time running out, Lantham chases puzzle pieces from the posh shadow of Mount Diablo to the kink clubs of San Francisco to the genetic engineering labs of St

    This review is from: And Then She Was Gone (The Clarke Lantham Mysteries) (Kindle Edition)

    Lantham is the classic cynical P.I., though a well-done and updated example of the type, but the collection of secondary characters populating Lantham’s San Francisco Bay Area were what really stole the show. Engaging, fleshed-out, funny all around, the secondary characters – whether the snarky girl Friday intern, or the eccentric net guru on the hill, or the missing girl who sparks the investigation – left me wanting sequels as much on the hope that they’ll be back as for wanting another Lantham story.

    The book is has a lot of “local flavor” – I found it just the right mix of insider nod for the locals while still being approachable to anyone who has heard of San Francisco and is passingly familiar with urban and suburban life.

    And Then She Was Gone is definitely worth a read, whether you’re a mystery junkie, or just want a quick, fun read.

    This is the first book of a planned trilogy, and it’s a great start. The characters are engaging and smart, and the plot is tightly paced, and the mystery itself has all kinds of interesting twists and turns that all make sense by the end of the book.

    I can’t wait to see where the author goes with these characters and with the hooks he’s left for the next book.
