Meet Digger Sharma, wisecracking half-Irish, half-Indian gumshoe. As he deftly patrols his usual beat in the City of Angels, Digger attempts to solve two seemingly innocuous, straightforward, and unrelated cases. But the deeper he dives, the more he realizes he's not only in over his head but also swimming with the sharks. He must unravel the mystery to protect his client, a sultry Latina, and himself with their very lives on the line.

The author did a great job in presenting this drama and I liked how comfortable the story flowed even with suspenseful intrigue. How he figures out what is going on, is his dogged pursuit of the facts that puts him in the crosshair of an unknown killer. The author planted a few strategically placed clues that kept me in the game with key elements that enhanced my reading pleasure. You’ll have to read this cleverly written whodunit to learn the outcome. Digger is flawed but I like his spirit and I look forward to solving more cases with Digger Sharma. Overall, this was an enjoyable read.
A modern LA noir full of twists and turns featuring one of the more memorable PIs I've ever come across.
I loved the classic, dry wit of Digger Sharma. There was great dialogue and a intelligent characters. The storyline was great, but at times the pacing and depth fell flat. There was a lot of leading up to things and then sudden revelations which became frustrating after a while. Digger Sharma could have been developed a bit more with more nuance to his backstory. Lots of amusing cultural references. Overall, it was a great story, good plot, and a fun read!
The thing I enjoyed most about this book was the author’s turn of phrase. Some brilliant comparisons and witty retorts made me chuckle unintentionally throughout. The story itself was plausible and enjoyable but perhaps less memorable as the two sequences of events combined. Thank you to Netgalley for the advance reader copy of this book.
