The Verifiers – Staff Review – Haley
The Verifiers by Jane Pek (request)
Meet Claudia Lin, amature tech sleuth with a mystery she is determined to solve using dating app data she has access to from her job at Veracity. Claudia follows in the footsteps of her favorite novel detective as she cracks the case and her own life.
Going in I thought this was going to be an excellent read, however I had mixed feelings about it. The mystery plot line was convoluted with too much tech jargon a lot of the time. The personal interactions of Claudia and her family were the highlights of the book. The constant reference to the literary detective hero also disrupted the flow of the novel. Overall it was lackluster and didn’t live up to its potential.
