Picked this up in the cheapy section of Book Closeouts.

From Chapters:
While her friends are making mad cash and getting massages at their dot-com jobs, Amy Gray quits her low-status publishing position to realize her girlhood dream of being a private investigator. Joining a small Manhattan agency, she finds herself plunged into an intriguing world of “con men, lunatics, narcissists, polygamists, sociopaths, felons, petty thieves, and pathological liars”—a description almost as apt for the men in her social life as for her on-the-job subjects. Working with a gang of misfit colleagues (a former zookeeper, a one-time child star, an avant-garde philosopher, and other eccentrics), Amy discovers even more about herself as she detects uncanny parallels between her investigations and her tumultuous love life.

This book is credited as being a non-fiction, but I'm suspicious. Can anyone's life be like Amy Gray's? This book is essentially a chick lit book. Amy find a job at a PI company that is as dysfunctional as any small company can be. Each employee has their own quirks (from being called Assman to parading around after hours at a club in a thong). Amy also talks about her love life and what's wrong with the guys she dates (and what is wrong with her when she screws up a perfectly good relationship). She uses headers for the chapter that are quite entertaining, including "A million and one ways to kill a caterpillar".
Really, reading this book is like watching Sex and the City (minus all the sex references). It was quirky and fun, and a pretty quick read!

Reserved for Kristy after my mom is finished.

Journal Entry 4 by wingAceofHeartswing from Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, May 22, 2007
This book is non-fiction? This book reads like Chick lit. A young female joins a dysfunctional private investigation agency. She helps to solve a few interesting cases. The emphasis on solving cases is a lot of searching on the internet and then talking people into telling all. Amy also discusses her painful love life or lack thereof. Amy seems to find all the weird-dos possible. Is the world populated with that many or are they all in NYC?
