As a mummer, I was really excited to start reading this book. I could tell within 2 chapters that I would be really excited to be done with it. I am basing my review not as a mummer, but as an avid reader of quality literature.

It was certainly an interesting plot idea, even if you aren't a mummer or familiar with the mummers. A man in shot in front of hundreds of onlookers in the middle of a parade - and there is not one witness to it. Great. But (this doesn't give away the ending) ::spoiler-ish
Amanda Pepper strikes again. She attends the famous mummers parade with her niece Karen and C.K. Mackenzie (boyfriend/cop). Her co worker from school was marching until one of them is killed. Add to the fact that another is missing and nobody saw the killer makes this interesting. Enter suave stranger to the plot who may be a killer but not sure. A store owner with a secret, fiance of dead mummer thrown in. While at school, Amanda is dealing with a spoiled teenager who doesnt do the work assigne ...more
I actually listened to this on audiotape and the reader was pretty good. I can't say I was in a hurry to find another book in the series. But I wouldn't mind another if the opportunity is right.
As always these books are an easy read. Great beach book...I like this series as it is set in Philadelphia, my hometown.
Slow in places, but an enjoyable mystery.
