Book Reviews
One Got Away
By S. A. Lelchuk
Reviewed by Sue Wilder

Nikki Griffin is a motorcycle riding, used bookstore owner with a PI license. Her priority is punishing people, usually men, who hurt people so that they will not abuse again.
One of the heirs of the super wealthy Johannessen family in San Francisco hires Nikki to investigate Dr. Geoffrey Coombs, a smooth talking con man. According to Martin Johannessen, Dr. Coombs has established a relationship with the matriarch of the family. She has spent lavishly on trips, clothes and jewelry for Dr. Coombs and now she is being blackmailed by him.
Nikki, backed with an unlimited expense account, begins pursuit of Dr. Coombs who has suddenly departed San Francisco. She catches up with him, but that is just the beginning of a story where nothing is as it seems. Dr. Coombs is just the tip of the iceberg in a tale that revolves around stolen cars, the sex trade, drugs, gangsters, and all manner of bad people that need correction.
One Got Away is the second book in the Nikki Griffin series. Nikki is the female equivalent of Jack Reacher. She lives by her code and does not compromise.
Mr. Lelchuk has once again delivered an action packed plot that propels the reader to an exciting finish. The Northern California setting is authentic. The dialog is crisp. The characters are well drawn. The visual is outstanding. This reader looks forward to Book #3.
READ IT—this is a thrilling ride

Find You First
By Linwood Barclay
Reviewed by Stephanie Saxon Levine
When tech millionaire Miles Cookson learns he has a terminal illness and a 50 percent chance of having passed it on to another generation, he is faced with a huge challenge. Though childless, he had been an anonymous sperm donor in younger, poorer days. Through his diligence coupled with assistance from his wallet, he learns that he has nine offspring. Motivated by a desire to inform and help them financially, should they be unlucky enough to have inherited his disease, he sets out to find those nine.
Miles connects with a young film documentarian, Chloe, who joins in his quest. As they proceed through Miles's list, one by one, they make one terrifying discovery after another. Miles's potential heirs are vanishing. It seems someone else is getting to them first.
This reader was fascinated from page one. Not only is the premise totally intriguing, but the characters are so memorable and their motivations so believable that they almost literally leap off the page. As many characters as appear throughout the book, I never felt the need to refer to earlier pages for a refresher on a character's identity.
Linwood Barclay is so inventive in his plotting, setting, and characters that I wonder how he can sleep with all these ideas bouncing around in his brain. With every book, I become ever more impressed by his shining talent. Don't miss Find You First. Harper 1st Printing: $27.99
