Booklist Reviews 2010 December #2

The week after Teresa Ann (Tai) Randolph moves from Savannah to Atlanta—to run a gun shop she and her brother, Eric, just inherited—she finds the body of a young woman, Eliza Compton, shot in a car across the street from Eric's house. The exclusive and secretive corporate security firm Phoenix, for which industrial psychologist Eric consults, attempts to take Tai in hand, offering the protective services of Trey Seaver, a crackerjack agent whose brain trauma suffered in a car accident left him emotionally insensitive but with an uncanny ability to detect lying. But Tai will not be restrained; with both herself and Eric of interest to police, she's in full investigative mode looking for Eliza's murderer. The convoluted plot involves money (of course), politics, and some of Atlanta's movers and shakers. Whittle's debut novel, clearly intended to be the first in a series, boasts a feisty if somewhat foolhardy protagonist whose relationship with the intriguing Trey bodes well for further installments. An overcomplicated story gets in the way a bit, but this has all the makings of a promising series. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2010 December #1

Tai Randolph, new owner of an Atlanta gun shop, finds a murdered woman in her brother's driveway, but he has fled to the Bahamas, left her to deal with police questions, and hired security agent Trey Seaver to watch her back. Trey is a former police detective and survivor of a debilitating accident that has left him with no long-term memory. VERDICT In this exciting series debut, Whittle provides not only an original, well-constructed plot but also a cast of unforgettable characters all somewhat flawed by life. With comparisons to Meg Gardiner and Karin Slaughter, this will appeal to readers who enjoy unusual approaches to crime fiction. Can't wait for the next one.
