Book Review: The Misfortune Cookie

The Misfortune Cookie by Laura Resnick
The 6th ‘Esther Diamond’ novel is an unmitigated, unpalatable disaster. As Esther and her idiotic tepid relationship with the dark and prickly Lopez drags on, she gets involved in goings on in Chinatown involving cursed fortune cookies. This was utter trash as Lopez is a weak, indecisive moron given to jealous rages. Esther is a whiny bimbo and a bad actress. I don’t care about her, her self-destructive deluded emotionally unstable relationship or the cliff-hanger ending that sets up the 7th book.
