THE MISSING INK
This first-person story launches an interesting new series for the author of the mysteries featuring police reporter Annie Seymour. Olson uses the fresh setting of an upscale Las Vegas tattoo shop (but unlike many cozies, this has no do-it-yourself features!) for a fast-moving tale with quirky but affectionately portrayed characters. Although stubborn, Brett never becomes too stupid to live in her determination to solve the mystery.
The tension is kept at a high pitch.
