    Things aren’t what they seem...

    Nica, at loose ends, adds her name on the office door of her dead uncle's private detective agency, which gives her both income and a place to sleep. Some new walk-in clients hire her to do run of the mill detective work, but one couple, who say they were referred to her by her building, are strange and curious to Nica. The elegant pair want to hire her but can't explain why in her office and also offer to pay her big bucks for her service. They request, that they must all meet later that evening and go to a place where they can talk safely. There, all her questions will be answered. Nica has started to form many questions about her quirky new clients, but they will all have to wait. A new question moves to the top of her growing mountain of questions after she sees them, for a brief moment, at the elevator in the hallway. It is when she gets a glimps as both put in a strange mouthpiece and bite down, then fade away to nothingness as they wave goodbye to her. I enjoyed how Sue Perry has used words and phrases to describe her characters and find humor in some dark places. Some names sound silly others give insight to what and who they are. As you travel through the layers in FRAMES you come to understand many things aren’t what they seem to be. I look forward to seeing old friends again and meeting new “things” in the forthcoming books in the FRAMES series.

    A pulse-pounding Urban Fantasy gem!

    I have to admit, when I first started reading this book, I was totally confused. I didn’t have any background information and immediately was drawn into the mind of Nica. It was intense and yet that intensity is like a character all its own when reading this book. Original and I loved it! Nica is a rookie private detective and even though she tried her best to not get involved, she’s drawn into three weird cases. Before Nica has a chance to blink twice, the world she knows falls away and the truth is revealed. The world is made up of Frames where anything is possible and Nica is called upon to help defeat the Big Bad. Filled with twists, turns and so much action I hyperventilated, Nica of Los Angeles is an addictive read. Sue Perry did a superb job weaving the story with such description I became a part of the action. It reminded me of The Matrix on several levels and I can’t wait read the next installment. If you love Urban Fantasy with dashes of film noir, you’ve got to read this book. Favorite Character: Nica. I loved how open she is as a character. As the reader, we’re thrown into her head and let me tell you, it’s a trip. She’s gritty, honest, quirky and kicks ass. I love her as a heroine and I can’t wait to read more. Favorite Quote: Looking at matters from many perspectives impedes progress. I rely on reflex and certainty to remain alive and protect the Frames. My Rating: 4 stars
