About this title
Fifi Cutter is an acerbic, bi-racial twenty-something, with family issues and a delightfully cynical world view. Just fired from her boring, but steady job at Colchester Casualty, she is barely making it as an independent insurance adjustor when her freeloading half-brother, Bosco Dorff, shows up with the news that their Uncle Ted has been murdered. Fifi is hired to investigate. Ted was an insurance broker to the stars–porn stars. Posing as grief counselors, Fifi and Bosco interrogate a colorful array of suspects, including Ted’s smoking hot mistress, his portly assistant, and his deadly competition, Corazon Villareal. Fifi zips around LA to check out the various and vaguely guilty suspects -- all classic LA characters. When Bosco disappears, however, Fifi is catalysed into immediate action, finding the unlikely killer and gaining an unlikely accomplice.From Booklist:
When a novel's principal characters are a currently unemployed insurance investigator named Fifi Cutter and her usually unemployed half brother, Bosco Dorff, you know you're in for a bit of weirdness. Debut novelist Freeman doesn't disappoint: from its first page (wherein Fifi and Bosco get into an argument about whether they have an Uncle Ted) to its last, the book sparkles with offbeat wit and snappy dialogue. The characters grab us from the moment we meet them, and the story, in which Fifi and Bosco pretend to be a private-eye team in order to investigate the death of the aforementioned Uncle Ted, is well constructed. The author, a lawyer who handles cases involving insurance companies and death-row inmates, writes with the breezy style of someone who has been doing it for years: the writing feels light, effortless, entirely natural. The novel is billed as "A Fifi Cutter Mystery," which gives the impression that more will follow. Let's hope so. David Pitt
