First Grave on the Right - Darynda Jones Not sure how to rate this one. On the one hand I liked Charley's sarcastic voice but on the other hand it all just felt like a bit of a front. Being so far behind the curve reading these books I knew who Reyes is/was from various Alpha showdowns so I didn't have a great reveal. The plot/mystery seemed to take a back seat to the world-building/backstory- I'd got to 60% and there wasn't really a mystery to investigate.

I'm still not clear how Charley earns her money given her pro bono PI work and her work for the police - do they pay her like an informant?

Also I didn't think the being in thrall to Reyes gelled with her sarcastic persona.

However, I will assume this is a typical first novel and the series settles down

Maybe 3.5 stars?
