This is a more gritty detective story. Their is strong language. Unique characters, with lots of flaws. Some violence. This is a shorter novella I would call it. Easy fast read.

Jane is not the best person at social communication. She has taught herself to be a hacker. She does a lot of work for P.I.s living at home. You want things to go better for her than they have gone in the past.

Lenny is her cousin. He has come on hard times. They are all each other have. Lenny is a photographer. He is worse in social circles. He catches somebody committing a crime. He is set to take the fall and is arrested for it.

Jane needs to bail him out of jail. They don't have much money. She is determined to get him out.

It draws you into their lives. You feel for them. I want to know more about them.

Some of the scenes seem to reel.
The setting is a richer neighborhood in Baltimore. Jane rents a guest house while it is trying to be sold. Jane has a bigger dog for company and that's all she wants for now. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0985485205, Paperback)

Discovering a brutally murdered boy in a rainy dog park sends misanthropic private detective Jane Ronson on a journey through Baltimore's gritty underbelly. Aided by a sexy cop, a bad-ass bull terrier and an only-in-Baltimore cast of characters, cynical Jane must use her computer-hacking and street-fighting skills to save her sad-sack cousin from being framed as the killer. Fellow writers say: "Tough chick Jane Ronson is a butt-kicking new heroine. With her help from her doggie Doppelganger, she hacks away at the grime and glory of Baltimore's streets. Think Lisbeth Salander meets John Waters"; "Jill Yesko's tightly woven debut delivers as much bite as bark. A fresh protagonist, a lovable bull terrier sidekick, and enough plot twists and turns to make this more than just a great walk in the park"; and "Jill Yesko brings a bracing new point of view, with a protagonist who resembles a latter-day, female Mickey Spillane parachuting into Smalltimore's ritziest neighborhoods."
