This is a very well written book, but something about it really creeped me out? Was it trying to be all things to all readers? Was the get-over attitude of the main character highly cloying and annoying? A self-satisfied acceptance of The System, while believing she can always best the system?

This debut crime novel features Maisie McGrane as its protagonist. Expelled from the police academy and forced to work as a meter maid, Maisie follows the trail of conspiracy after she stumbles across the body of a City Hall staffer with two bullets in his chest.

Four and a half stars. I'm looking forward to the sequel, Choked Up, which is coming out January 2016.
