Just as good as book 1. I was actually afraid to read book 2 because it always seems I never like the second book as much as the first. I was happily surprised. Just like the first it's funny from the very beginning. It takes place about 2 months after the previous book. Gin is bored as hell with her retirement and you know what that'll lead to. All of the same characters take up a good part of this book with a few new ones thrown in. I will stop here because I don't want to give away anything. Let's just say now I'm dying to read #3.
