2014 book 49

Frances Brody's A Medal for Murder
The second in Brody's Kate Shackleton series finds Kate being hired to find a pawnshop robber--only then she gets caught up in the case of a missing girl--and then a murder! I had a few complaints about this--like the last one, the flashbacks give away too much information to the reader, the romance angle is pretty underbaked, Kate's apparent moral ambiguity is kind of problematic, and so on. Still, it's an entertaining read, even if I did guess the killer early on. The very end is weird, but I liked the rest of it well enough. B.
