The first in the Sid Langdon Mysteries series. More
Sid Langdon, a newly-licensed private investigator, gets his first case—complete with a corpse and a million dollars in missing jewels. And he is tapped to find the answers by the very man who may be responsible for both! So who done it? Sid wades through a sordid quagmire of blackmail, adultery, and betrayal to find the answers. It’s Sid’s first case—it might well be his last!
This is where it all begins. Get in at the start of the Sid Langdon Mysteries as Sid, a seasoned insurance investigator but fledgling detective, gets his first case. Tag along as he stumbles from one lead to another. It's not pretty, but for his first time out, not bad either. Sid gets his man—kind of—and, more importantly, establishes himself as a trustworthy private eye who gets results. It is Sid's contacts from this first case that will eventually lead to his next, when once again he is off and running. Meet the characters in Sid's world—his lovely next door neighbor, who welcomes him with a casserole and becomes the foil for his rambling theories; the police lieutenant, who wonders how the most unlikely characters and hopeless scenarios wind up on Sid's doorstep; and then there's Max, who surveys Sid's world from his perch beside the terrace doors, always ready with a cheerful greeting and Sid's favorite classic movies on the late show.

I quite enjoyed reading this book and found it very thrilling. The book follows a crime and mystery theme that keeps your mind working the whole way. This book will definitely be loved by all lovers of crime and detective stories. There is also a bit of romance in the book for all those romance lovers. The great thing about this book is that it will appeal to both male and female, young and old audiences. There are a few twists in the book that will definitely keep you on your toes. I did not expect to enjoy this book, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. The author's writing style was very good with a very good storyline. The author gives you detailed descriptions of all the characters involved, which helps you understand their roles in the book and an idea of who plays the main and important roles. The author also gives you a good sense of the characters emotions and their state of mind. The characters are well written and well suited to the book. The story keeps you captivated and interested right to the last page. The book is quite short, but the author manages to get all the needed information in those few pages. The story was easy to follow and moved fluidly from one chapter to another. I think the book is worth the read and the time spent reading those precious pages. I found the book enjoyable and would definitely recommend it. I think the book will be enjoyed by all. I am not a big fan of crime books, but I enjoyed this one as it was not to long drawn out and it got to the point quickly. I was not a big fan of the name for this book as I feel it does not really fit with the storyline. This book was for me a must read, I think quite a few people will enjoy it. I rate the book 3 out of 4 stars.
