#BookReview: The Middle Sister (Jack Salvo) by Jesse Miles

Synopsis: Jack Salvo teaches philosophy one night a week at a community college, but he pays his bills by working as an L.A. private detective. A wealthy woman hires him to find her wayward daughter Lillie, who has been missing for a week. Salvo figures the girl is probably hiding out with her friends. All he has to do is interview the friends, bust their stories, and deduce the missing brat's location. Salvo soon learns that her "friends" are somewhat parasitical. When he finds Lillie, she is hosting different kinds of parasites - the little ones that help rid the world of rotting corpses. Salvo is then pulled into a maze of murder, arson, and blackmail. During his high-speed run down L.A.'s fast lane, he spars with grifters and gangsters, dodges the cops, and digs up a dark, deadly family secret. 


About the Author: Jesse Miles grew up in central California, where his ancestors had arrived from Arkansas and Oklahoma during the dust bowl migration. When he was eleven years old, his father took him on a business trip to Los Angeles. While his father was in meetings at the State building, Jessie walked around downtown L.A., saw a movie, and bought a Dragnet water pistol. While gazing at the ocean from the Santa Monica Bluffs, he decided he wanted to live in L.A.

Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This was such an outstanding title!! The author did a great job making me interested in the story and its characters.  I couldn't stop read this one at all and now I am a full fan of Miles!!  I haven't read anything from this author before but this will totally not be the last book that I read from them. The pacing in this one was fabulous and I wished it would have been longer.  

Overall, there’s a lot of intelligence in this book and a lot of fun. That’s a great combination.

The Author did an outstanding job in making sure he kept you interested throughout the entire book. 

I am such a Jesse Miles fan! As with his other books, this one kept me so intrigued that I couldn't put it down. I walked around the house reading it!

A good read...Miles knows LA and lays out a logical story line.....keeps your attention....
