#BookReview: Domino Effect by JM LeDuc

Going to War With Sinclair O’Malley Is A *BAD* Idea. Old friends. New Friends. And at the heart of it all, badass investigator Sinclair O’Malley showing just why she is The Pearl Angel of Death. (And seriously, we get the *actual* origin of that name in this book to boot!) The initial investigation is typical Sin, uncovering things no one else can. But when the bad guy decides to get personal, The Pearl Angel of Death gathers her army and goes to war… with pretty disastrous results for her enemies. Simply bad ass, yet again: If you think Jack Reacher is awesome… you need to meet Sinclair O’Malley. 🙂 Very much recommended.

#BookReview: Painted Beauty by JM LeDuc

JM LeDuc Outdoes Lee Child. With Child’s work with Jack Reacher, you very quickly know what you’re going to get: an interesting mystery with a bad ass loner investigator that doesn’t work well with anyone, much less a team. With the Sinclair O’Malley books, LeDuc proves that he can create equally compelling mysteries with an equally badass investigator – who happens to know what it means to have a chosen family and others you actually care about. While it could be fun to put Sin up against Reacher, and while I’ve loved the entire Reacher series, LeDuc has very easily crafted a character and ongoing mythology that is even better and at least as deserving of praise. Very much recommended.

#BookReview: Sin by JM Leduc

Excellent Action Story. This is the re-published edition of a book that has been around for several years, but with most/ all proofreading mistakes caught and with a new cover. And I’ve had this book for most of the time it existed – and only chose to read it now, with the third book in this series releasing this week. Man, I should have read this book years ago. Truly an awesome action story with a richly developed world and a bad-ass, take-no-prisoners type heroine. The former cover of the book had me thinking it was *vastly* different in style than it turned out to be, and the new cover (with the orange background and standing female figure) is much more indicative of the near frenetic action you get with this tale. It cannot be said enough: If you like Jack Reacher type action tales but with a bit less brooding and a bit more knives in throats… you’re going to love this book. Very much recommended.
