No Regrets, No Remorse is a A Sydney Simone Mystery.
I was wondering if I would like the character Sydney because of her business. She is a human pest control. Sydney checks out the people she is supposed to get rid of and makes sure they are bad guys. Sydney has no remorse for killing them.
She works off a internet site and no one is suppossed to know who and where she lives.
Sydney helps at a art gallery, law office for her exboyfriend. She also lives in apartment in the building.
Oscar Leopold is a sculpture artist and part time lawyer. He uses Sydney as a model a lot. He really does not like to answer his phone for either business. After a few times the phone ringing Sydney gets up from modeling to answer the phone. The first few times it rang she let her boss talk her out of answering.
The call was from Roy his ex-law partner and he is in jail for murdering his boss Jack. His boat was blown up with him on board.
Oscar and Sydney go to the jail to visit Roy and hear his story. Roy was also seeing
Jack's wife and had a fight with him days before his death.
Sydney took a case to kill someone but before she could someone else beat her to the job. Sydney does not give refunds. She should be able to be safe from the person who hired her from finding her. He leaves her a message that she could kill a different crooked lawyer for the money she already has been paid for.
Thier are a lot of twists and turns before the ending of the novel. I was surprised at how much I ended up liking Sydney and Oscar. Sydney is such a strong character, she is tough,rides a motorcycle,teases Oscar, she knows computers,guns,karate, as her own moral guide lines.
Oscar is divorced, doesn't know much about fixing cars, Owns a few used cars that are always breaking down, a artist,lawyer and willing to risk his prize possesions for a friend, does not take bribes to look away.
I would like to read more novels with them in it.
Thier were a lot of scenes that had me laughing out loud at them. A few dead bodies, a very good book that you don't want to put down till you finsh the book.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
