(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)

★★1/2

"Alexander Drake, Investigator for Hire, doesn’t like working for the Nobility, and doesn’t prefer to take jobs from strange men who accost him in alleyways. A combination of hired muscle and ready silver have a way of changing a man’s mind. A lord has been killed, his body found covered in bite marks. Even worse, the late lord’s will is missing, and not everyone wants Drake to find it. Solving the case might plunge Drake into deeper danger." (From Publisher) 

I had to think about the rating for awhile.  While I liked the synopsis and characters, I also felt that a lot was not fleshed out.  I kind of hope this is prequel to a future series.  If this was a prequel I would say this is three-star book, but as a standalone it is not really worth the time to even read this novella.
