Soon to be a TV show on ABC this fall starring Cobie Smulders! Dex is the proprietor of Stumptown Investigations, and a fairly talented P.I. Unfortunately, she's less adept at throwing dice than solving cases. Her recent streak has left her beyond broke--she's into the Confederated Tribes of the Wind Coast for 18 large. But maybe Dex's luck is about to change. Sue-Lynne, head of the Wind Coast's casino operation, will clear Dex' debt if she can locate Sue-Lynne's missing granddaughter. But is this job Dex's way out of the hole or a shove down one much much deeper?… (més)

The story nor the characters are original. But it still managed to be fun. Fun because a wise-cracking, doesn't-know-when-to-shut-up character really never gets old.

I dislike the trend of having GIRL in titles when the story is centered around a woman. She's a grown ass person, not a child. That always annoys me, even with stories I like. It's a trend that needs to go.

I liked this story and its characters. Though bisexuality used to tantalize rather than genuinely propel the plot was a bit much.

All and all, it was a fun bit of escapism. ( )

The show is handling this story better, which I didn't think would be the case. ( )

Very fun hard boiled PI story. That fact that it's set in Portland, and made by a writer from Portland helps. I'm looking forward to whenever the next graphic novel in the series comes out, because this is great, and I look forward to reading more. ( )

Wow, I fell write into this book and was sad when I stumbled out of it at the end. Dex Parios is a private investigator and she's really stepped into it this time. Her gambling debts have gotten ahead of her and the owner of the casino is calling Dex in to make good on them. Her granddaughter has gone missing and she wants Dex to clear her schedule immediately and find her. Easier said then done. The granddaughter was running with some bad people and its only going to get worse before it gets better. Gritty, witty, and all around bad-ass. I want to continue reading this series and I definitely want to watch the TV adaptation. So glad to have a new graphic novel series to devour. I'm all in! ( )

Greg Rucka is a longtime favorite writer of mine, so I was happy to see he was doing a private eye series. Unfortunately, I had set my expectations too high. This throwback to 70s and 80s TV detectives features a perfectly fine crime story, but it also seems pretty inconsequential. Also, I was made uncomfortable by a few aspects, like the amount of physical abuse heaped on the female protagonist, the frequently exhibited homophobia of several characters, and the use of the "R" word to refer to a character with Down syndrome. I think they were used to add to the gritty atmosphere and the flip attitude of the main character but these moments really clunked for me and threw me out of the story. Still, I enjoyed the book enough to read four volumes of the series in three days. ( )
