Promise You Won't Tell? - John Locke


Cover Rating: 2 out of 5
Rating: 4 out of 5



Synopsis:

“I think something might have happened to me Saturday night. Something bad.”

Private Investigator Dani Ripper’s client list is nuttier than the Looney Tunes conga line, but she diligently solves one crazy case after another, waiting for a game-changer.

Enter Riley Freeman, 17-year-old honor student.

Saturday afternoon Riley quietly placed a little strawberry sticker on her private area and pretended it was a tattoo. She didn’t tell anyone about it. That night she went to a slumber party that featured drinking and boys. Riley fell asleep, woke up the next day with no reason to think anything happened…

…Until Monday, at school, when a classmate called her Strawberry.

Coincidence or crime? Dani agrees to investigate. And the roller coaster ride begins.


Review: 

Very intelligent and interesting freebie.

I really enjoyed this, it was witty and smart.

Dani Ripper is a hilarious character and brought a great humour to what could have been a very suspenseful thriller.

The story starts slow but the amusing dialogue keeps you entertained; the work with some of the other clients at the start had me in absolute stitches. 

When the drama kicked in I was hooked, Riley is a very well developed character; she is the victim of a potential sexual assault. She starts the story rather shy and somewhat bashful and ends it more confident which I enjoyed watching; she is a very intelligent character and somewhat kick arse.

I had some great shockers in this book too and it makes me want to read the other John Locke as Dani Ripper book; Call Me.

I am curious about Dani's past as it is made clear that she is a a high profile victim of some sort and I look forward to learning more about it through the other books written by this character.

Chapter 41 made me laugh out loud. 

I look forward to more from John Locke no wonder he has so many best sellers.
