SUCH WICKED FRIENDS by Rod Hoisington. In this third book of the Sandy Reid series, Hoisington gets his mojo back. Wicked, starts off slowly, maybe even boringly, but at about the 30 percent point, Sandy, our sassy heroin with her newly minted law license turns the justice system in the small Florida town of Park Beach upside down. The story opens with Sandy’s partner, Martin, receiving a phone call from a potential client asking him to meet her in the courtyard of a condominium complex at eight o’clock that evening. Martin hands off the potential client to Sandy who shows up on time only to find the client sitting in a chair in the middle of the courtyard with a bullet hole in her forehead and a manila envelope in her lap. Sandy keeps the story moving at warp speed trying to stay ahead of her nemesis, State Attorney Lawrence Moran, who wants to put her in jail and throw away the key. She also strives to stay on the good side of her partner, Martin, while keeping her boyfriend local detective Chip Goddard happy. The last half of the book is fast paced and holds the reader’s interest.
