Pretty in Ink: 10/09/16

Pretty in Ink by Karen E. Olson

Pretty in Ink by Karen E. Olson is the second of the Tattoo Shop mysteries. Brett Kavanaugh is watching her friend's performance as one of the Strip's newest drag queens when the performance is interrupted, her friend is attacked and hospitalized. Unfortunately Britney Brassieres doesn't survive.

Brett is drawn in again by a tattoo. Knowledge of local artists leads her down a dangerous path involving shady parlors, car chases, break ins, etc. etc.

There's a lot of action, a sea of red herrings, and enough cliff hangers to make a cliff diver happy. It's a fast paced read but not one that after all the excitement has stuck with me. I was too wrapped up in turning pages to really soak it all in.

Three stars
