The Infinite Blacktop Reviews
Fantastic! I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. Honestly, I had never heard of the Claire DeWitt series before, so I got the first two books - and they were awesome. This one, though,...just...wow. I loved it. I hope there will be more to this series!
Claire DeWitt is back, sharp and self deprecating, she breezes through experiences that would flatten anyone of lesser strength. Even when trying to solve mysteries on no sleep while chemically impaired, she prevails.
Her story opens on the mean streets of Oakland, and I must admit partiality to seeking out books that feature my home town for its setting. Someone has tried to mow her down in a vintage Lincoln, and that's just one of the puzzles she tries to unravel. Still in the background is th ...more
I received a copy of this book from Goodreads in exchange for a review.
There is a lot going on in this story…from a much younger Claire DeWitt, who’s childhood friend goes missing, to a more experienced Claire DeWitt that someone is trying to kill. Then there is the Claire DeWitt who is still trying to earn her PI License. Three times in her life, three mysteries that pull her in.
Young Claire and her three best friends have been influenced by a famous French detective, Jacques Silette, and his n ...more
Who tried to kill Claire DeWitt in a hit and run? That's what Claire wants to find out but will there be anything left of her when she finds her would-be killer?
A funny thing happened a few days ago. I was driving to work, pondering when/if a new Claire DeWitt book would be coming out, only to find there was a Goodreads giveaway for the newest one AND it was up on Netgalley. Naturally, I was all over it.
Fresh from the events of Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway, Claire DeWitt goes through t ...more
Read it and wanted to return to page one and start it all over again because it was so good, so brilliant, so genre defying and I know there are so many layers I missed on the first reading. I love this series. there is nothing else like it. It is unique and addictive.
Dnf , half way though. I usually do not quit Reading a book this late in the story, but I am totally lost. Maybe my concentration level is off, or at least not sufficient enough to follow the back and forth cases in this book.
Thank you Netgalley an Atria Books for the ARC.
I have to admit, first thing that attracted me to this book was the gorgious cover. Just look at it!
And sure enough, once in, the story takes off at full speed.
PI Claire gets hit by a car and escapes the ambulance, determined to investigate who did this to her and why.
I like the format of having to solve three mysteries to get there, all of them being cleverly entwined.
In 1986 Claire and her friends Tracy and Kelly spend their time as teenage PI's, ...more
Netgalley gave me a copy for review and this was one of the best books I've read all year. Thank you Netgalley!
Claire DeWitt is the standard, she is the beginning and also the end of my love of this genre, Claire DeWitt is the queen of my heart, Claire DeWitt is the one. Claire DeWitt is the best detective in the world. This book is rich and heartbreaking and I loved every minute of it. Gran’s dialog is as exquisite as it has ever been and her descriptions are so damn spot-on that reading them w ...more
