The Equalizer is the first in a crime-fiction series by my writing friend, Midge Bubany. What fun to see my friend have some writing success in the form of an honest-to-gosh published book! And, what fun to read a story full of lovable characters and ironic twists.
Sometimes, in my experience, crime fiction can make a girl restless – just tell me what happens already! I am not sure if this phenomenon has anything to do with what I am sure is my woeful inability to be an actual detective. Or maybe it’s just because my kids only let me read for 5 minutes at a time. Regardless, I’m usually just totally confused and uninterested by the time I finish a mystery murder.
But the Equalizer was different. There were reminders and hints to help me keep things straight. A combination of intriguing clues and interesting sub-plots to deliver a nice tension. I still couldn’t wait to solve the case but I didn’t resent the words that stood between me and the back cover.By the end I was totally hooked. And totally invested in finding out if I was right about the killer.
