This was a quick and fun read. Though the ending could have been built out some more. My only real issue is the authors use of about a half dozen vulgar words throughout the book. Some authors will claim it helps support or establish the character they are creating. To be honest, for me it only establishes the authors inability to select a better word.

Nice easy read. Well look for the other books about Dr. Fenimore and Mrs. Doyle and read those too.

A real fun read. While the series is set in Philadelphia, this one takes you to NJ and explores that area.
