"I first met Ms. Tree as a comic personality, even though she has been, now and then, either the protagonist of brief tales and the lead in a proposed television sequence. this is often her first incarnation as lead in a full-length novel, and it's a brief, enjoyable read.
Collins fairly performs up the "pulp" perspective the following, with plenty of tough-guy discussion and the standard double-crosses. there are various "in-jokes," too, together with her maiden identify, which made me chuckle.
This isn't a "deep" novel, whatsoever, yet it's very enjoyable, and value it slow. i glance ahead to extra Ms. Tree adventures sooner or later, no matter what media they ensue to be!"
