My Recommendation

It's great that more mystery and thrillers with a diverse cast are being published, and I keep finding wonderful new authors and characters to follow.  Yolanda Avila, a LA PI, as written by Veronica Gutierrez is one.  Yolanda is still laboring with the guilt she feels over her mother's recent death and is reluctant to see the bad dreams she has as anything but dreams when her godson is kidnapped.  A former LAPD officer, forced to quit the force, she can ask questions and go places that the cops can't go, and they're not very happy that she seems to get the answers before them!

Great characterization and insight into the world of labor and unions in LA, I look forward to more stories starring Yolanda.

Thanks to Bella Books for access to a digital ARC via NetGalley.
