Review: "A Chip and A Chair" (Seven of Spades, #5) by Cordelia Kingsbridge
A Chip and A Chair - Cordelia Kingsbridge


Wow, I’m… I'm totally speechless.


What. A. Ride!



This is hands down one of the best mystery/crime series (both M/M and non-M/M) I have ever read.


I can’t believe that every, and I mean EVERY question raised in the first 4 books, has been answered, and every little detail has been explained. No questions left unanswered here, folks.


Now THIS is how you do a fucking series finale, authors. Take notes!



This final instalment was so very satisfying and such a brilliant conclusion to an all-around amazing series.


I cannot recommend this series highly enough. It will forever be one of my all-time Top 5 favorite series.


I already miss Levi, Dominic, Rebel, Martine, Leila, Natasha, and every other of these so very well-developed characters. It feels like saying good-bye to real people, and while this is first and foremost an acknowledgment to this author's talent, I always hate feeling like this after I finish a book or series.





Cordelia Kingsbridge, I thank you and I bow to you.

Nope. This wasn’t any easier the second time. Still heart-breaking, but also still brilliant and outstanding, and so very, very well-written.



And I officially declare this as one of my all-time Top 3 favorite series.


You can quote me on that.

Every person should be excellent in his profession and should definitely have the characteristic required to be successful in the profession. Private detective or private investigator (PI) or private eye (PE) is also a profession which needs immense potential and people with a certain set of quality can only become a private investigator.




A private investigators job is never a desk job. The job of a detective is anything but monotonous and boring. However, as the private detective works in different arena's ability to learn and comprehend new thing should be very high. An inquisitive mind is always open to learning and loves to work in different environments. A private detective may sometimes physically follow or do surveillance of a person to find about his daily routine. On any other day, he may have to strike a friendship with unknown people to extract information. Many a time private detective have to disguise themselves as workers, hawkers/drivers etc. Therefore, to work in such a versatile field a person needs to be inquisitive and open to learning new things.


Patience is another trait without which a person can never become a private detective. Sometimes, a private investigator has to follow a single lead many times before getting desirable results. Therefore, tolerance and fortitude are needed to accomplish the job of a private investigator. A private investigator should be open to delays and problems and he should be able to withstand them without getting annoyed or anxious. In some of the cases it takes months of trails to succeed. If a private investigator leaves the trail after getting impatience then he can never become a successful detective.


A private detective usually takes personal data from his clients. Therefore, for a client a detective is a person in whom he has bestowed trust and faith. This trust and faith shall never be betrayed by a private detective. A client before handling case give a brief of his/her problems. These problems are very personal in nature such as sexuality, bigamy, infidelity, dishonesty, drug abuse, cooperate secrets, professional problems etc. The confidentiality and privacy of the client shall not be compromised under any circumstances. A deceitful person shall never opt for this profession as a private detective needs to be honest, sincere, genuine and truthful.


A detective needs to collect information and data from society in general. Therefore, affability, warmth, sociability and cordiality needs to be present in a person aspiring to become a private investigator. The ability to open up with new people and get friendly with them is the key to success. The aspiring detective should be able to open up the conversation with any person. Beginning of the conversation in itself resolves most of the work. While interacting with people, a friendly person doesn't appear to be threatening and people reveal the information to such person.


A private investigator or detective should have most advanced technological skills to meet the challenges and scientific environment of the modern era of technology. A good private detective should enhance his/her technological skills to stay on the top of latest technologies like knowledge of spy phone software, GPS tracking system, spy camera, modern surveillance, spy gadgets etc. to full fill client's need.

My initial rating was 4 stars, but I’m bumping it up to *5 stars* and put this book on my “favorites” shelf. This series just gets better and better with each reread.
