I usually can detect the 'perpetrator' early on in mysteries, yet even near the very end, I didn't have a clear idea as to who was behind this one. As an OD consultant, I found it a unique experience to have a protagonist in a mystery novel, who speaks my language and pays attention to what is not obvious on the surface, yet think anyone who is intrigued by human behavior will be captivated.
I will definitely read the next in the series as soon as it is available.. Format: Paperback Verified Purchase. Fun, quick read. Multiple chapters make it easy to stop reading without losing the thread of this story about a sucessful business woman solving two murders at her corporate job in the San Francisco financial district.
The heroine struck a cord with me; middle aged, smart, but imperfect. In addition to the unexpected ending, the pace of the story is more realistic than the majority of mysteries in which everything happens in a day rather than in weeks. The bonus is a clear explanation about a corporate professional, an Organization Development Consultant.
Read this fascinating mystery in an evening or two or on an airplane. I loved this book. Kim Barnes has creatively and insightfully used her expertise in Organization Development consulting as a way to assess a complex situation a corporate murder. She has done it effectively and in a fun, engaging and readable way. This books educates people about what organization development consultants really do and entertains those who are practioners in the profession.
