Lucky Lucas is back in The Damage,set in the colorful, edgy, and seductive city of San Francisco. Lucky Lucas, a widowed ex-Police Detective, has relocated from Southern California to San Francisco to be near his son’s family. As a favor to a friend, Lucas agrees to locate Diane Berger, an eighteen year old girl who has suddenly disappeared from her wealthy parent’s Russian Hill home. Lucas locates the girl in Venice Beach, but not before stumbling upon a corpse in the apartment where she has been staying. Blackmail and marital infidelities result in additional collateral damage and homicides, while Diane Berger’s maturation from teen-age girl to a young woman hungry for independence is fueled through her friendship with Mona, Lucas' girlfriend, and her new mentor.
I really enjoyed this book and will read others by this author. Proof reading, if at all possible, should be done. I really got a laugh out of page 221, I hope you read it and laugh too ! Thanks !
This is the first timeI have read a book by this author. I believe he has the potential to be a great writer. One aspect that I experience when reading a book is the flow it has. When the flow is smooth, as it was in this book, you are reading a good book by a good writer.
First I've read by him, and won't be the last. Enjoyable, with a good mystery to solve, as well as interwoven with family and friends.
You get to know Lucky, I'm sure there more to uncover about him, and maybe Mona.
