Review: Denial of Services by Maddi Davidson

  • Paperback: 264 pages
  • Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (October 26, 2012)
  • Language: English

  • Found this book on the new shelves at the library.  Had never heard of the series ("Miss Information technology") or the author.

    Emma has a job where she and her team transfer data from one system to another as part of buyouts or acquisitions.  Fascinating idea of a job with lots of craziness bound to happen and ill-feelings everywhere.  But it isn't at her job, that she found a body (well, this time anyway...), it is in her apartment building.  Her neighbor Laguna has been murdered with her own protest sign shoved through her chest and Emma's land lady Magda is suspected of the crime.  So she tries to solve the case, by infiltrating Laguna's Lime-O organization.  Which has the horrible way of identifying its members by having them wear lime green. 

    The motive was interesting and I had no real ideas as it unfolded but it made sense in the end.

    This book was lots of fun and very funny with wonderful, interesting characters.  One of my favorites this year.
