Ferrelli is a young Boston attorney with a secret - her mob
connections. She thought that she had turned her back on her
family, but now her uncle Louis wants her back and working
on his behalf. Her current client is one Norman Kane, accused
of using a QR code he had created to steal a medical drug.
But when he is murdered, the case takes on a new dimension.
Now Isis must turn sleuth herself, with the aid of her online
alter ego, Marjorie Gardens, from her crime blog and discover
not only who killed Kane, but who set him up for the theft.
Anybody who thinks that cozies are about small towns, cakes
and cats ought to check out this new series. Mob bosses, big
city law firms and computer programming are not common themes
in this type of story, but this makes it all the more interesting.
I confess to not fully understanding about QR codes, but this
aside, there is plenty in here to appeal to both cozy fans
and readers of other types of crime novel. Read this book
for some excellent descriptions of the various locations,
a convoluted and involving plot, a shot of romance with the
case’s prosecutor and the author’s own knowledge
of legal matters. That is a lot to cram into a novel and it
works, providing the reader with a satisfying novel that manages
to be well written, involving and cozy. A series to watch.
