Do No Evil, See No Evil, Hear No Evil are a the creepy warning notes left with dead bodies in Do No Evil: An Artemis Agency Novel by Kymberly Goltermann & Ashley Goltermann. Phineas feels like she has truly hit rock bottom, after being listed as one of the top up-and-coming defense attorney’s in Los Angeles Phineas finds herself back in her home town, broke with a failed relationship and a failed law practice. Then the unthinkable happens, her sister Phoebe, the eldest and more responsible of the siblings, is left at the alter by her fiancé. After several bottles of wine, the two sisters decide to leave their old lives behind them and open up private investigator office together.
In the bright light of day and sobriety, the sisters decide that this could work, but just as they start to get things set up, a dead body appears in their office with clues left by the killer. As the bodies start piling up and the clock is ticking, the sisters find themselves suspects by the police and in fear that they may be the next victim.
I loved the relationship between the sisters, both were so different from each other, driving each other nuts and yet they truly loved each other and were there for each other (okay, I feel like I say this a lot in reviews but I really do like good sister relationships because that is what I have with my three sisters). The novel is written in first person with each chapter switching between the sisters so you get truly get a feel for each sister, however, I did find myself having to stop a couple of times and remind myself which sister was speaking. Each sister has a dog and one of my favorite scenes of the book is when Phoebe leaves her new poodle with her grandmother, only to find that the grandmother has dyed her dog a bright color when she was left only with it. The sisters are witty, I LOVE the grandma, admit I wanted to jump Officer Rudo myself by the end of the story, the title “Officer Yummy” is very fitting. The novel does swear a bit and uses the “F” word several times, just be aware.
