JUMPING THE CRACKS
TITLE: JUMPING THE CRACKS
AUTHOR: VICTORIA BLAKE
Details: no. 4 Sam Falconer Mystery
Despite her feelings about the place, Sam and her business partner Alan have opened an office for their P.I. business in Oxford. When they're hired to guard the rather spooky artifacts in a local museum it turns out not to be the easy job it appeared to be. Soon, one of the museum employees has been murdered and Sam finds herself minding the dog of a man she hardly knows.
More violence erupts around Sam, putting not just herself at risk, but for a long time she has no idea why. And while she finds herself trying to deal with the spooks and demons attached to her case, she also has to come to terms with those that spring from her own past.
These are interesting mysteries and well plotted. They also have a heroine with issues that are important, but never take away from the main story.
My only issue with this book was that one or two questions remained unanswered. Other than that it was a quick and thrilling read.
