Carlotta Carlyle, the six-foot-tall redhead private investigator, thought that working undercover searching out fraud on Boston's Big Dig would be a challenging assignment. After all, the Big Dig, the creation of a central artery highway through downtown Boston, is a 14 billion dollar boondoggle, the largest urban construction project in modern history. But playing a mild-mannered secretary working out of a construction trailer is not quite the thrill ride she had in mind, so Carlotta starts moonlighting, taking on a missing persons case. The search for the missing Veronica James turns up one dead end after another, as do her fraud investigations, and it looks like Carlotta has dug herself one big hole. But the mysterious death of a construction worker stirs up a storm of events, and soon enough Carlotta is really in over her head, grasping at the edges of a vast conspiracy that threatens to make this investigation her last.

    " I liked this okay. I was intrigued by the mystery portion enough to continue reading but I thought it was a bit too entertwined. How many private investigators start with two clients and seperate searches only to find out they are not only linked together but basically the same search. I don't know, not as believeable as I like. I also didn't love the language etc so common in these types of books. I guess I should give up finding some good, well thought, clean, mysteries. "

    " I'm surprised there haven't been more novels set in Boston around the area of the Big Dig. This was really good. "

    " Not a bad read - I had a hard time getting into the book but I think it was me. Maybe I wasn't ready to start a new book. It had a good ending and went fairly quick after I became engaged in the story. My first time for author Linda Barnes. "
