"Il mistero del teschio perduto" è il secondo romanzo del ciclo Real Murders - I misteri di Aurora Teagarden - della nuova collana, Odissea Novels, inaugurata lo scorso marzo dalla Casa Editrice Delos Books e nato dalla penna della famosissima autrice Charlaine Harris.
Questo romanzo, che mi è piaciuto davvero molto come il precedente (Il Club dei delitti irrisolti) mi da modo di spiegare cosa sia per me "una lettura che ti fa sentire a casa e a tuo agio". Ho già usa...more
