Review: Murder in a Nice Neighborood by Lora Roberts

Murder in a Nice Neighborhood by Lora Roberts is the first novel in an apparently complete six-book series, and after reading it, I am definitely interested in buying the others. Roberts has a unique detective character, an aspiring freelance writer who is homeless and lives in a bus. When a street person is murdered and left under said bus, Liz becomes involved in the investigation.

Roberts paints Liz's vagabond life with precision and care, and offers a satisfying resolution that opens things up for the sequel. I will definitely keep reading. And hey, it's multiformat (non-DRM'd) to boot. Recommended.
