Cisco Bandits (A Gwynn Reznick Novel) by Inge-Lise Goss centers on newly trained operative Gwynn Reznick, who goes undercover for her first assignment; investigating one of the highly private companies who call on Ruben Dordi’s Investigation Group. Posing as an accountant for the Prudell Energy Company, Gwynn starts to question the objectives of her task. But she soon learns that the company is hiding something when a death of an employee is swiftly covered up as an accident, with another previous death occurring under suspicious circumstances.
Despite being a second book in the series, to my delight Cisco Bandits can be read as a standalone thriller. The strength of the novel lies in the way Goss brings the story to life, by pitting her protagonist against the odds. Gwynn finds herself as the next unfortunate employee or likely murder victim, when she is approached by Prudell’s CFO about missing files and accounts that are not adding up. She needs to complete and, most importantly, survive her assignment.
Goss’ prose is excellent. I can certainly imagine, feel, and smell the vibe of the town and the office environment. The pace is fast and flawless, and the suspense is more than enough to keep readers on edge from start to finish. I loved the action scenes and enjoyed some of the humorous moments as well. Gwynn is brave and quick witted yet has relatable flaws, making it easy for readers to root for her. This is definitely a meaty novel for thriller and PI fiction fans to savor.
