Painted Black by Debra R. Borys

Painted Black
By Debra R. Borys

Jo Sullivan is a reporter for a Chicago newspaper, Winds of Change, one night she and her friend Keisha run into a young woman who is selling herself on the streets. Keisha knows this girl from her work with an outreach program, insisting she stop and talk to the girl; Jo goes along and soon becomes wrapped up in a strange tale. When Lexie disappears the reporter in Jo must find out what has happened, along the way she soon runs into Chris a street kid who is trying his best to rescue Lexie after he leaves her alone with a perverse mortuary attendant.  

This is such an interesting story, though this is not for everyone, there are moments when it is crass and takes an unforgiving look at life on the streets. That being said, this is a fantastic novel full of suspense and intrigue. Each character comes to life in these pages making it almost impossible to put it down for even a moment as you wonder what is going to happen to Chris and Jo. I think the author has come across an interesting setting for an entire series of novels featuring Jo and hopefully Chris as well, at least I hope so. The only thing I must say that it does need a bit of editing other than that the author has certainly struck gold with this novel.
