"While I've found most mystery/thrillers to be rehashes of the same old plot line, this was refreshingly new/original." - Jack Murphy, New York Times bestselling author of Reflexive Fire

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
If you’re looking for a fast-paced detective story that doesn’t take itself too seriously, then Cheryl Bradshaw’s Sloane Monroe series is for you. In this, the first instalment, we meet the series’ sassy, fast-talking heroine: a private eye who gets in over her head while investigating what appears, at first, to be a skiing accident. You can almost smell the crisp, alpine air of Park City, Utah—the sweeping mountain backdrop is a welcome change to the gritty inner-city setting of most crime thrillers.

Black Diamond Death by Cheryl Bradshaw
Took a break from a 1500 page collection to read this quickly.
Glad I did, it was a great story full of easy characters to attach to in a pleasant location. A thriller which I finished within 24 hours (always a good sign).
Sloane Monroe is a PI, working alone but with a cop as a boyfriend. He provides intel rather than assistance. A lady dies while skiing, certainly looks straight forward but digging determined something else is going on. There’s a rich guy, some real estate and way too many girlfriends for one bloke.
A very good book 4/5
