#BookReview: One Got Away (Nikki Griffin #2) by @salelchuk

Synopsis: PI Nikki Griffin – a badass bookseller who punishes abusers – is back in S. A. Lelchuk's One Got Away

Nikki Griffin, a private-investigator when she isn’t running her small bookstore, is on a case. The matriarch of one of the wealthiest San Francisco families has been defrauded by a con-man, and her furious son enlists Nikki to find the money. And find the con-man.

Nikki isn’t a fan of men who hurt women. Her secret mission, born of revenge and trauma, is to do everything she can to remove women from dangerous situations—and to punish the men responsible.

As Nikki follows the trail toward the con-man, she realizes that no one involved is telling her the whole truth. When the case overlaps with her attempt to protect a woman in trouble, and Nikki’s own life is put in danger, Nikki has to make terrible choices about who to save—and how to keep herself alive.


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review: This was a great mystery.  I loved the characters and it kept me reading way past my bedtime.  This one is kind of a complicated story but it just helps to draw you in. Although I didn't read book one I didn't feel to lost. However, it does make me want to go back and read it.  Nikki is the character to rood for and I can not wait for more. 


“A fast-paced and frenzied thriller that will keep [readers] guessing right up until the end… The author does a great job at making seemingly random events come together in a way that does not feel last-minute or hastily put together… In short, Nikki Griffin is one spectacular heroine…and Lelchuk's One Got Away is one seriously entertaining read.”
―USA Today

“There will be kidnappings, blackmail and twists…Lelchuk delights in showing just how shady everyone turns out to be.”

―New York Times Book Review

“Rollicking...This breakneck-paced unapologetically bloody fun.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Bookseller/private detective Nikki Griffin lands in hot water when she takes on a wealthy new client...The nearly fearless and deeply empathetic Nikki is ridiculously easy to root for, and the pace is fast and furious all the way to a deeply satisfying finale. A smashing sequel. More please.” Kirkus Reviews 

One Got Away is a delightfully complicated mystery, one that constantly keeps readers --- much like Nikki herself --- on their toes.”

“Fans of the first book or of hard-boiled women detectives in general will relish this heroine’s latest outing, especially given that Lelchuk’s writing is more nuanced and atmospheric than that found in hard-boiled mysteries of old. Those who followed...TV’s Dexter are another audience... A fine choice for mystery collections.” Booklist

Praise for Save Me From Dangerous Men
“Action packed and razor sharp - Jack Reacher would love Nikki Griffin.”
―Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Past Tense

Save Me from Dangerous Men is one of those rare thrillers that draws you in so relentlessly that you find yourself getting kicked out of bed and reading all night on the sofa. If you’re a fan of Jack Reacher or Lisbeth Salander, you are gonna love Nikki Griffin. This is an outstanding debut novel to what promises to be an exceptional series. Highly, highly recommended.”
―Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of the acclaimed Pendergast series

Save Me From Dangerous Men pulses with daring and risk. Nikki Griffin, bookseller by day and private investigator by night, takes on men who hurt women and makes them sorry. Calm, complex, lethal, and fascinating, she’s the revenge fantasy you want right now.
―Taylor Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of Liars’ Paradox
