#Review: On The Sly by Wendy Koenig

Synopsis (from Amazon):

Sylvia Wilson, a bar owner in St. Louis, Missouri, arrives at work to discover the body of an ex-police officer in her locked bar. The police focus on her as their primary suspect, so she decides to launch her own investigation into the dead man and his accomplices. But when the killer sends her clear messages that she and her loved ones are on his radar, she knows it’s just a matter of time before someone ends up dead.

Review by Coffee&Ink

This is one of my favorite books of the year so far.  You know in past reviews when I said: unputdownable? This is the real deal. Between the sharp as a knife prose, the main character Sylvia, and the driving plot–I was reaching for the book in the middle of the night to find out what happened next. Dynamite! 

Sylvia owns a popular bar called Smugglers. She is a small business owner savant, “not like other millennials,” which had me laughing. There’s a wry, sardonic thread throughout. When she goes to work one day, she finds a dead body in her bar, which makes her the first and best suspect. Everything is on the line for her, and though they (the police, the FBI)  tell her to stay out of it, she does not sit down. 

You can feel her persistence and drive  throughout the story, to the very last page. Sylvia is likely going to be one of my favorite characters. I’d love for her to have a sequel, but jeez, she’s been through enough! Seriously, a sequel would be great!

Highly recommended for kick-ass heroine and twisty plot.
