Spoiler warning! Avoid this book if you’ve not watched theVeronica Mars movie and want to avoid spoilers for the plot of said film, because this book follows on from the events there. Hence this review will probably spoil the movie too.
Veronica is back in Neptune, working as a P.I, running Mars Investigations while her father recuperates. She’s struggling to make ends meet, not to mention paying Mac, who’s working as her office assistant. During spring break, a girl disappears from high profile party, and as the media attention starts hurting the profit of Neptune’s businesses, Veronica is hired to find her, as the Neptune police force has proven to be useless. It turns out that the house the girl disappeared from belongs to members of a Mexican mob family. Then a second girl disappears, from the same house, and this time, the missing girl’s family have connections to Veronica’s own past.
As with fellow Cannonballer Narfna, I’m not actually able to stay objective in the face ofVeronica Mars. I loved the show, I donated money to the Kickstarter campaign to fund the movie. Getting more stories about my favourite petite, blond, sarcastic detective, even in book form, is just a blessing for me. Interested in the rest of my review? Go here.
