One Got Away

 One Got Away

Author: S.A. Lelchuk

Narrator: January LaVoy

Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Year: 2021

Happy Monday! 

Nikki Griffin, a PI who’s also a bookstore owner, is back in the second installment from author S.A. Lelchuk. This time Nikki has been hired by the son of a wealthy San Francisco matriarch who believes his mother is the victim of a con-man. Following the trail of the con-man leads Nikki to some very bad men. And Nikki isn’t afraid to dish out some revenge to bad men. 

Lelcuck keeps the action going full throttle throughout the book. As Nikki’s search for the con-man and answers continues, she comes up against very dangerous group of sex traffickers. There’s lots of twists and turns to keep the action going and Nikki is like a dog who won’t let go of a bone. Nikki is a strong and complex main character. The senseless murders of her parents when she was young gave her a sense of justice and a moral code that often operates outside the law. Yet, she hasn’t last her humanity and does try to tame her darker demons. Bonus- as a bookstore owner, Nikki is an avid reader, book discussions and titles pop up throughout the story. 

January LaVoy provides an excellent narration for the audiobook. She hits the right notes during the high octane action scenes and conveys Nikki’s warmth and humor- especially during Nikki’s encounters with a lonely boy who helps her with the case. 

Even though this is the second book in the series, it could be read as a stand alone. There’s enough info in the book to give you a sense of the events of the first book. This is perfect for readers who are fans of Orphan X, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Jack Reacher. 

How does everyone’s week look? I’m getting my second shot tomorrow and hope to see my parents later this week.
