Hazardous Duty, by Christy Barritt

This is the first in a long series of novels featuring Gabby St. Claire, a wanna-be forensic scientist who runs a crime scene cleaning business and solves murders. Of course, she's constantly in danger herself, and woe to those who befriend her as the corpses pile up.

I read this for free and it was well worth it. But there are parts of the book that are a bit off-putting. Only when I looked the book up afterwards did I notice it is in the sub-genre of "Christian mystery and suspense." So those awkward parts where religion enters into the novel unexpectedly and without advancing the plot line -- nor character development, surprisingly -- well now it is explained.

The remaining volumes aren't free, which means I won't be reading any more about Ms. St. Claire.
