D so it was important how the investigation went that
Made The Story Work For The Most Part The Investigation the story work For the most part the investigation OK There was actually some footwork involved I liked the characters of Price and his partner MedinaI thought it was extremely weird and a little too contrived that all the major players are essentially sitting in the same chair 25 ears after Jessica s mother was killed Plus Jessica was a little TSTL at the end which was disappointingThe contents of the envelope from her dad was a nice touch Missing person PI Jessica Shaw is looking for her next gig when she realizes that she is her own client Alicia Lavelle abducted at age three the night her mother was murdered is Jessica s real identity The picture of the missing girl holding the Barbie her Barbie is actually Jessica which means her father lied all these ears A college student Amy Ong is missing and found butchered in a similar manner to Eleanor Lavelle Jessica s mother Could there be a connection and if so Jessica may be nextTHIN AIR is mystery than thrilled Lisa Gray hooked me in with the intriguing plot and different points of view I couldn t help to hope for a happy #ending for Jessica she certainly deserved it The secretive small town cast of characters led me had no shortage of #for Jessica she certainly deserved it The secretive small town cast of characters led me had no shortage of suspects Most everyone had something to hideTHIN AIR is the first in a two part series with Jessica Shaw I can t wait to read the seuel What I liked about THIN AIR is that the story was complete at the end no cliffhanger to make me buy the next book I do not like waiting a ear
finish a story so to Gray for trusting readers will care enough to buy book two Really happy to have chosen this as May s First ReadA novel twist on the private investigator formula What happens when a troubled and drifting PI who specialises mainly in finding missing people gets an anonymous message suggesting she looks into a disappearance from 25 Five fags a day years ago only to realise the little girl who disappeared was her How does she handle the fact that her whole life may have been a lie a sham the people she grew up with weren t who she thought they were and she had a whole other life stolen away from her about which she has no knowledgeWell what happens is she determines to try to solve the mystery even if what she finds is painful But there are other factors at play not least a gruesome murder of a beautifuloung woman led by a detective she has seen before Coincidence or twistWhile I m not sure about the premise of a missing persons private detective basically working as an ambulance chaser looking for cases to work unsolicited seems a strange way to try to make a living it is fundamental in setting up the plot Where it goes from there is genuine intrigue which creates a page turner that keeps ou grippedI thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who likes mysteries private eye stories or procedurals An element of psychological thriller but that s definitely not its main artery Where Jessica Shaw goes from here I m not sure There is obviously a second book for her in the pipeline so we ll see where the author can take her nextRecommended 4 stars another author I will be looking to add to my TBR list. Jessica soon realizes that Pryce is hiding something about her father's checkered history and her mother's deathTo solve her mother's murder and her own disappearance Jessica must dig into the past and find the secrets buried there But the air gets thinner as she crawls closer to the truth and it's getting harder and harder to breathe. .
To Finish A Story So
S very unlikeable and uninteresting And done some really stupid thingsSuch as drinking a uart of scotch in a short time topped it off with a glass of wine laced with sleeping pills Pretty much through the whole book All she did was drink and smoke All of the Characters were underdeveloped and not believable It was very clear the author #DID LITTLE IF ANY RESEARCH ON LAW ENFORCEMENT LANGUAGE #little if any research on law enforcement
language etc Another thing that bugged me was the author seems to enjoy etc Another thing that bugged me was the author seems to enjoy many minor character in a harsh negative way Examples bartender with acne scarred face and limp hair waitress old her red hair is from a bottle her breasts aren t natural her fingernails fake her tight fitting uniform reminds me of a porn star oh and her name tag is crooked It s not just the people she describes this way She also describes places and objects like this Another example was the bar stool with a rip in it from which the foam rubber cushion erupts like a popped pimple Ewww gross and unnecessary At times i wondered if an immature 5 th grader was writing Save ourself time and money and pass on this one Thin Air is an excellent thriller It kept me guessing all through Private investigator Jessica Shaw lives out of her pickup truck Wanders around and picks up work where she can Mostly she tries to solve missing persons cases people who vanished into Thin Air get it Then she gets an anonymous email about a missing person a 3 Jane of Gowlands year old child that looks exactly like her from an old photo because it is her That starts her search to find out who she is who her parents were all tied together with a murder the night her father disappeared with her It was an okay story pretty implausible but I can suspend belief for a while But the writing was not awesome From one section of just a few pages there were these gems her legs tangled in bedsheets as thin as cigarette papers The heat outside was as heavy as a wool coat a woman whose short life seemed to have had missing pieces than aard sale jigsaw puzzle gates flanked on either side by hedges as neat as a Brazilian wax By about the third one I was laughing It wasn t all that bad but it could have used a good editor maybe 2 12 stars on a generous day This is apparently the start of a series that I won t be finishing She investigates missing persons now she is oneI really enjoyed this fast paced un putdownable mysterythriller with an enticing premise that delivered on the nose and then someThe main character Jessica Shaw is fun and feisty the kind of girl The Piper in the Wind you want to have onour side and definitely go for a drink with I can t wait for the next in the series overall an excellent read initially the multiple plots are confusing as they are intended to be but Gray has a firm grasp and the pieces fall into place one criticism the characters involved in the ending could have been developed earlier in the story instead they come as a surprise which is good but also as who are they which is bad This was Gray s first novel I am inclined to read the next in this series I m mixed about this book For the most part it was OK sometimes interesting but I did find it easy to put down I figured out the killer the moment the character was introduce.

I really enjoyed this easy read about a private investigator who very early in the story maybe even in the summary realizes she is a key player in her current investigation Lots of characters and interesting backstories somewhat predictable but still a nice distraction The kind of book when ou don t want to think hard just be entertained I would definitely read in book when ou don t want to think hard just be entertained I would definitely read in series This was an accomplished debut thriller set in California from an author who surprisingly turned out to be Scottish It seems to be the start about a series about Private Investigator Jessica Shaw and while I didn t particularly like her as a character I reminded myself that I have often taken a while to warm up to some of my now favourite heroines and that prickliness can be far interesting than niceness I will definitely be keen to follow her future adventuresJessica Shaw is a loner travelling the country following the sudden death of her beloved father going where the work takes her but when she is sent an anonymous email about a child who disappeared 25 ears earlier she is shocked to recognise herself When she arrives at the scene she discovers that her mother a beautiful bar girl with a difficult past was brutally murdered the same night she was taken and no one was ever arrested for the crimeMeanwhile LAPD detective Jason Pryce is investigating the murder of "a college student in a seedy motel but discovers that she too had secretsThis was well written with just enough "college student in a seedy motel but discovers that she too had secretsThis was well written with just enough to set a scene without being distracting a wide range of potential suspects and an intriguing mystery with the reveal of the perpetrator coming as a complete surprise to me Yes there is a reliance on coincidence which is a common feature of first time authors but it wasn t excessive Jessica is a talented and driven detective who drinks too much which is a bit of a clich but as her story is revealed my interest and sympathy both grew I liked Jason and hope that he will return in future books Violence mostly occurs off camera there is some swearing and a scene in a strip club but no sexMy thanks to NetGalley for the arc which allowed me to give an honest reviewThin Air is available now and is still on NetGalley at the time of writing Thin Air Jessica Shaw By Lisa Gray 1 If I could give it 0 stars I would I try my best not to write many bad reviews However if I am going to write a review it is going to be honest This is my #first read by this author and may just #read by this author and may just the lastThis is the first book in a new Jessica Shaw series by Lisa Gray I figured out the killer early on and there was just too much unnecessary description At times she would write 2 pages describing a room This was done over and over Thin Air is told from several points of view and alternating timelines And was very confusing The past the 90s when Jessica was first abducted and in the present as Jessica works to solve the mystery of her past all while Detective Pryce works a mystery in the present Thin Air is Advertised as a thrillerhowever there is nothing thrilling about it In fact It s a very very boreing read It didn t keep me hooked at all I kelpt putting the book down not really wanting to pick it back up The main character wa.
