Private investigators Sean Hayes and Ashley Reid are hired to investigate the case of a girl who went missing 15 years earlier. At the same time, Sean is tasked with helping the NYPD investigate a woman’s murder. Splitting the cases up, these two intrepid, and somewhat mismatched, sleuths, follow false clues, dead ends, and threats to see that justice is done. True Crime by V.N. Sharma is a well-plotted mystery with touches of humor and action that will test the wits of any mystery fan, but, unfortunately, the stilted language and grammar problems can intrude and interfere with the necessary suspension of disbelief.
I liked the plot and characters, but the use of language makes it impossible for me to give it more than three stars.
