I read this book with a reluctant fascination. Wondering where the story was going, but although I wasn't enjoying much about it, still continuuing to read on and find out. The setting is the streets and about as low as it gets. The lead character, Honey McGuinness, is not your average leading lady crime fighter. She chooses to live on skid row and has seen it all. When one of her friends is murdered, she takes it upon herself to solve the crime. As the back of the book says, it is "Bawdy, gritty, and unrelenting...." Not my type of book, but if it sounds interesting to you, then feel free to email me and I'll pass along my copy to the first person to request it.
