Finlay and Vero, accidental contract killers, are at it again in Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun. This time the pair are looking for a corrupt policeman, who in turn turned on his mob boss, for the same mob boss who in turn is blackmailing them, while paying to attend a citizen police academy camp. That’s a lot of turns but I promise it will make sense when you are reading it.
Did I forget to mention this is a laugh-out-loud mystery similar to the Stephanie Plum series? Finlay is a single mom with two small kids and a cheating ex. Her secret weapon is her nanny/accountant/accomplice Vero and all of Vero’s questionably legal friends and relatives. I never thought I would say this but I like this series slightly better than the Plum one right now. At least Finn seemingly picks one of her hot boyfriend prospects rather than dragging it out over thirty books.
If you like zany comic mysteries or even buddy movies, don’t miss Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun. 5 stars and a favorite!
