SUGAR SKULL – VG
Hamilton, Denise – 2nd in series
It is clear Denise Hamilton knows whereof she speaks. Her character, Eve Diamond, is a journalist for the Los Angeles Times and knows that city well. Eve investigations take her from murder of runaway street kid, to the Latino music community, to a wealthy mayoral candidate and his wife. Although the tie-up may be a bit of a plausibility stretch, it is still a very well-written story. This is an author and series well worth following.
