Casey Holden is a private detective that quit the police force so he could play by his own rules. A self-proclaimed ladies man he enjoys playing the field and dating more than one woman at a time. He is hired by a woman to find out who killed her husband. The police have labeled it a cold case after two years and she isn't satisfied that they did a good enough job finding the killer. Holden is an annoying tenacious character that doesn't give up despite almost dying repeatedly.
The mystery part was good, although the ending didn't really solve anything and was left with too many questions for me. The part that made this book so difficult to read was the dialogue with the main character. Holden couldn't or wouldn't shut up. What he considered funny was just as annoying to me as it was to the other characters in the book. 99% of his conversations with people could have been omitted and then I might have enjoyed the book. As it was I would have to give it 2 stars.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
