Fiction. Literature. Mystery. Thriller. HTML:From Rob Thomas, the creator of the television series and movie phenomenon Veronica Mars, comes the first book in a thrilling mystery series that picks up where the feature film left off. 
 
Ten years after graduating from high school in Neptune, California, Veronica Mars is back in the land of sun, sand, crime, and corruption. She??s traded in her law degree for her old private investigating license, struggling to keep Mars Investigations afloat on the scant cash earned by catching cheating spouses until she can score her first big case.
 
Now it??s spring break, and college students descend on Neptune, transforming the beaches and boardwalks into a frenzied, week-long rave. When a girl disappears from a party, Veronica is called in to investigate. But this is no simple missing person??s case; the house the girl vanished from belongs to a man with serious criminal ties, and soon Veronica is plunged into a dangerous underworld of drugs and organized crime. And when a major break in the investigation has a shocking connection to Veronica??s past, the case hits closer to home than she ever imagined.
 
In Veronica Mars, Rob Thomas has created a groundbreaking female detective who??s part Phillip Marlowe, part Nancy Drew, and all snark. With its sharp plot and clever twists, The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line will keep you guessing until the

I wouldn’t have minded a bit more Logan but there are worse experiences when it comes to Logan and the Veronica Mars series, and even without enough of him, I still thoroughly enjoyed this, it felt very much like a bonus season of the TV series.

Mystery isn’t generally my genre, but this story of two young women missing during spring break in Neptune worked well for me, Veronica’s personal connection to the case added to the tension and emotion, plus the pacing was great with plenty of red herrings and twists.

I think this would be very readable even if you’re unfamiliar with the TV show, however, if you do come into this already a fan, you can expect to revisit most of your favorite characters and every single one of them felt satisfyingly true to their television counterparts.

Most importantly, if you love Veronica and Keith, this upholds their reputation as one of the best father/daughter duos in pop culture. ( )

I came in touch with the world of Veronica Mars way late in the game, but I soon came to love this amazing young woman. Veronica is smart, sassy and brave, and this is fully respected in the book. In true Mars fashion, the mystery was intricate enough to keep me guessing until the very end and there were sufficient tension and humour to keep me turning pages well into the wee hours.

Of course, the best thing for me was getting to see all of my favourite characters again! Veronica's best friends Mac and Wallace definitely play a good role in the story, as does her father Keith. I always liked the relationship between Veronica and her dad, and I loved seeing them come to terms with their new living order once Veronica moves back home and Keith has to face a very long recovery.

My biggest disappointment was that some of my favourite characters definitely did not get enough action time. Weevil only made a cameo appearance, and Logan was present only in a handful of long-distance calls. What is this? I NEED an epic love story!

[image]

You said it! And there is nothing epic about phone calls... I hold very high hopes for the second book though.

This book will definitely appeal more to Veronica Mars fans, but it could be a great mystery read for everyone. Knowing the characters definitely is an added value, but is not a prerequisite for liking the book or understanding the story. Filled with snarky comments and wit, this is a great read if you're looking for a good mystery with likable characters.

I really wanted to like this book, but with the lack of Veronica as first person narrator and then the rudimentary writing, I couldn't get through more than four chapters.

I couldn't get past the prose like this:

"regal brick and sandstone entrance"
"The lobby glinted with brass and brocade"
"glass-sided elevator looking down over the luxurious gardens below"
"lobby looked the same as it ever had, with cream-colored walls and marble surfaces"
"A few girls with silk caftans . . . and a bored-looking boy wearing Gucci shades and a UCLA sweatshirt"
"only the trust-funded would be able to afford a room"
"Veronica . . . followed the red-and-gold chevron-print carpet"
all on the same page.

Every noun has an adjective attached to it, but nothing's specific to a place. Veronica could be describing any hotel, but this is one she practically lived in at a formative period of her life. It also seems as if half of the adjectives have hyphens. ( )

For all the Veronica Mars Kickstarter backers. You're like the people who clapped loud enough to bring Tinker Bell back from the dead. Except instead of clapping, you sent money. And instead of a tiny blond fairy, you resurrected a tiny blond detective.
