Gumshoe’s reviewer had a strong reaction to Bad Boy Beat.

“The plot is tightly written with several twists and turns to keep it interesting,” says critic Gayle Surrette. And while she sometimes despairs over Em Kelton’s more self-destructive habits, she finds my journalist protagonist “distinct and believable.” Overall, she is “looking forward to another installment in what I hope will be a series.”

Thank you! And, yes, I’m more into making a character relatable than likable. Sounds like I succeeded.
