Most homicide detectives have seen every imaginable crime. But every once in a while, there will be a killer who has a clever twist that hasn’t been done before.

Taffy Cannon, Open Season on Lawyers (Perseverance Press, 2002)

Taffy Cannon's sixth novel suffers from one of the silliest names ever given to a book. Don't, however, judge said book by its cover, no matter what is written there; Open Season on Lawyers, despite having some flaws, is a fast-paced, witty romp through the life and detection of a serial killer whom most of us would very much like to be.

2.5 stars - by a local writer who filled in at a luncheon I attended when Kate Jacobs of NYC knitting group series books took ill at the last minute and was unable to come. Taffy was entertaining and I looked forward to reading at least one of her books. This book took place mainly in the LA area and was well enough written that I will try one of her mysteries from another region of the US.
I really enjoyed this book! The story was great, and it was fun to read a book that takes place in an area I am familiar with. All around a good read!
One of her very best, suspenseful with a twist of an end. Reccomend this to anyone.
