For those who’ve read the earlier Gin & Tonic books, I’m pleased to say that Agent Asuri is back.
And she and Ginny are just as much fun to write in-conversation as ever.
â€œI know that you would not interfere with a police investigation. And I know that you have at least enough sense to be aware that youâ€™re a person of interest, by virtue of [plot redacted].â€ Asuri held up a hand. Her nails were cut short, polished with a dark red that, on her, looked professional as hell. Ginny was envious. â€œYes, I am aware of your claim that [plot redacted] and Iâ€™m also aware that you have no reason to trust the local police to believe you and so might be contemplating investigating this on your own, to cover your own ass.â€
Ginny tried to come up with a suitable â€œnever would I everâ€ response, but came up blank. Because the agent was right, of course. On all counts.
