This is actually the third book of this series and I found it a thoroughly entertaining read. Very "to the point" writing....not a lot of fluff. Good mystery, characters I'd love to be friends with and a good feel for the setting. What more could I want?....Only the other books in the series! I've already downloaded #1 and plan to read them all if they're as good as this one. Kudos, Mr. Simmons!

An excellent mystery. I really liked Jay and JL. The process of investigation was logical and clear. I was interested and involved through to the end. I didn't start suspecting the culprit till the end.

A decent murder mystery; but some elements I don't believe realistic. Flows fairly well, but sometimes I lost interest; this is why it took me somewhat longer in finishing.
