About the Author
After law school, Angela Gerst moved from New York to Massachusetts where over the years she worked for literary journals, as a Boston Globe correspondent, as press secretary for the French Library, and most recently for Newton Magazine. Her interest in local issues involved her in organizing and running Newton campaigns for alderman and mayor, and from thence to creating the fictional world of Susan Callisto, political consultant. She and her husband live near Boston.
I really enjoyed A Crack in Everything which is the debut mystery novel by Angela Gerst. Susan Callisto is a lawyer and a political consultant in Boston. Her world is turned upside down when potential politician Charles Renfrow walks into her life. Charles or Chaz as he is known is a charmer and he is the head of a biotech company that has questionable environmental concerns on the horizon. His $20,000 retainer is too attractive for the struggling political consultant to pass up. Then the bodies start piling up. And Susan's ex Detective Lieutenant Michael Bennett walks back into her life. As the plot thickens Susan has to examine all of the relationships in her life. All of a sudden people aren't who they seemed to be. As everyone's masks begin to slip, Susan realizes that everything in her life is filled with cracks...
Highly recommend this debut mystery novel. I'm looking forward to the next installment in the Susan Callisto series by Angela Gerst.
