Vicarious - Paula Stokes Yet another skimmer. Nothing wrong with the writing style, in fact, it did appeal to me, but the story itself did not hold my attention. I don't know what I was expecting, but a murder mystery set in some hazily defined setting wasn't it. Without getting into spoilers, I didn't find this particularly believable once the big reveal was made, or extremely compelling. The world building was weak, and I never got a clear picture of Winter's surroundings (other than she lived in an expensive penthouse with clubs dotting the street below).
