Bad to the Bone (Casey Jones) by Katy Munger
I managed to pick up this book at a very low price but it was worth more. Casey Jones reads like a more hardboiled Stephanie Plum or a precursor of Lori Armstrong’s strong female lead.
When she gets involved in a child custody case where the father allegedly abducted the kid her ex-husband also gets involved and someone turns up dead.
With the help of a handsome cop, her PI-partner and her own stubborn attitude Casey manages to find the killer, sleep around, drink, smoke and serve up some fantastic oneliners. While there is a lot to laugh during the novel it can at times get pretty dark as well, making this a very entertaining ride.
