Slingshot - Carsen Taite If I could give this 3 1/2 stars I would.

From the acknowledgements in the book this is Carsen Taite’s first mystery and the first time she has tackled a series. Luca Bennett is an ex-cop who quite the force under less than auspicious reasons. Now she is a bounty hunter because the lack of rules and people depending on her suits her personality. At least according to Luca.

The mystery was interesting, less so in the fact that you almost always know who is behind the crimes, although there are a few characters where you are left guessing as to their involvement and to what degree. What I think I found more interesting than the crime/mystery was trying to figure out how Luca was going to get out of the mess she was in and who was going to actually help her or betray her.

Overall I think this was a good introduction to the character of Luca and I’m looking forward to seeing another book and how this character develops.
