Review - Hot Rocks by Randy Rawls

Hot Rocks by Randy Rawls is the first book in the new “Beth Bowman, P.I.” mystery series. Publisher: Midnight Ink, November 2012

When private eye Beth Bowman is knocked unconscious in a South Florida hotel room, the good news is she gets to meet the charming Dr. David Rasmussen. The bad news? She’s wanted by the police for murder. Not to mention, several unknown parties are trying to kill her for reasons she doesn’t understand. Setting out to prove herself innocent, Bowman is tangled up in a world of stolen diamonds, international crime bosses, and thugs for hire. With her reputation and life on the line, she accepts help from a gang of guardian street people to turn the tables on the ne’er-do-wells who set her up.

This great read features gutsy private investigator Beth Bowman who takes on a simple case but instead is accused of murder when a dead body is found near her unconscious state. Trying to find the killer(s), Beth who knows her limitations, keeps on looking for clues until the job is done inherits a motley crew of back-up support that includes the mysterious Bob, Dr David and Dot. The author did a good job in delivering a finely tuned mystery that entertained me from the first page to the explosive finale. I loved how Beth handles the situations that she found herself in using her personal bravado. I can’t wait to read the next exciting forays that Beth and her cohorts find themselves in, in this delightfully enjoyable debut series.
