With her cynical view on life, dry wit and love of adventures, India is a great character. Her interaction with her love interest, Agent French, is both funny and touching. Their romance deepens these characters and adds a new level of emotion to this wonderful series. New details about India’s mother draw readers of the series further into the heroine’s life. The action begins immediately in this installment and never lets up.

Agent French has finally admitted his attraction to India. She should be delighted, but she remains furious after finding out that French knows details about her late mother that he has kept from her. Before India can analyze her feelings, she and French are attacked by ruthless men who take a mysterious letter that was delivered to India, which contains a bill of lading regarding supplies between India (the country) and Britain. Both are injured, but set off to find out more and discover that the colonel who sent the letter was tortured and murdered. The investigation leads to the docks and brings up a secret from her past that India doesn’t want to share with French. (PRIME CRIME, Feb., 320 pp., $15.00)
