In the middle of a wintry night, private investigator Fina Fitzgibbons finds Lorraine’s friend, Phyllida Oxley, slumped over her dining room table, the victim of memory-impairing date rape drugs. When her condition goes from poor to comatose, her distraught fifteen-year-old granddaughter, Kat Oxley disappears. Meanwhile, Fina’s agency is busy surveilling a massage parlor in Bensonhurst suspected of human trafficking, and Fina’s father reappears to throw a wrench into her relationship with NYPD Patrol Officer Denny McDuffy. As Fina frantically searches for the missing teen, she uncovers the truth behind the traffickers, but they have a surprise waiting for her in the not-so-friendly skies.

My review: The Brooklyn Drop by Susan Russo Anderson 

This is book #4 in A Fina Fitzgibbons Brooklyn Mystery but the first book I have read.  It does okay at standing alone but I felt there was some things I had missed.  Especially with all the relationships in the book.

Fina owns two business one a cleaning service and the other a detective agency.  She lives with her boyfriend NYPD Patrol Officer Denny McDuffy.  She has problems with everyone it seems.

Fina and Lorraine's friend Phyllida Oxley is passed out on her couch.  She seems to have been drugged with  a date rape drug. Phyllida only family is  15 year old Kat Oxley.  
Phyllida has lots of money but does not act like it.  Someone seems to be after her.

Fina is trying to figure out who would want to hurt  Phyllida.
Fina also has a case to watch a massage parlor for the cops.  
Fina's father comes back in the scene after leaving her and her mom years ago and causes problems with everyone.

I just did not connect with the characters.  It could have been just a bad day for me.

Lots of drama, lots of suspects and weird characters that made me think they were guilty because I did not like them.
I felt I wanted to know more about trusting Fina's impressions.

I was given The Booklyn Drop to read for free and in return agreed to give honest review and be part of its book tour.
