Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{December 31, 2011}   {Review} False Alarm by Rekha Ambardar

From Goodreads: When Officer David Zellner is called in to investigate a burglary at a jewelry store, he soon discovers that although the employees and owner seem happy on the outside, each of them has their own motive for the crime. Zellner soon discovers that in the jewelry business, not all that glitters is gold. A work of super-short crime from our Fingerprints line.


This is a very, very short story; it’ll take about 10 minutes to read, so it’s great for those times when you need something to read, but don’t have time for a whole novel, like when you’re waiting in line at the grocery store.  As this is such a short story, there isn’t much room for characterization and the like, but Ambardar has created a quick mystery novel that the police officers swiftly figure out; it’s a nice little read worth the time. Three stars.

I received a copy of this story from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
