Marie Knight pens another thriller in this series. The lives of the rich
and famous overlap with those who work for a living. Character building
and dialogue are great. The suspense as Minx confronts a killer is edge of
your seat. For a woman whose intuition and people skills in a case are
superb, Minx doesn't seem to do well communicating with Gabe. He's a macho
man with a heart of gold but doesn't let Minx see much of his better side.
Gabe's friend, Sgt. Antonio Atwell and his family are a priceless addition
that really give the tale a boost. The
author does a great job blending everyday people, some of whom are a bit
creepy, with the suspects. Associates we meet at the fitness Emporium,
especially the guys, will pique the memories of those forgettable dates we
had before finding Mr. Right for many women. This is a fun series--The
Ill-gotten Insurance, the second installment in the Minx Tobin Case
books, will not only keep you turning the pages until you reach the
end of the story, it will have you seeking out the first of Ms.
Knight’s Minx Tobin Case books if you have not already read it. The
author’s fluent writing style which brings her characters alive,
warts and all. Her ability to capture the outrage of the rich
implicated in the murder along side her depiction of the hero and
heroine and their supporting cast creates plenty of friction as some
of those characters are simply ‘way-out’ weird... Ms. Knight
offers characters you will want to get to know even better, characters
you are still rooting for at the conclusion of The Ill-gotten
Insurance. The story is packed with a gallery full of suspects and
enough twists and turns to satisfy any reader.--Long and Short
