really liked it
bookshelves: mystery
Read in August, 2007

I think it's the sign of a well written mystery novel, when the mystery is subtle and not in the form of a dead body which the main character just happens to stumble upon.

Bringing back Fremont Jones, the story is featured during the aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. With her home destroyed Fremont temporarily sets up a new office with a previous client, Alice whom she stumbles upon while driving for the Red Cross.

Anonymous threats lefts at her doorstop, amorous suiters who refuse to take no for an answer, the mysterious deaths of her previous landlords the Sorensons, ninjas? Ok, the last one was a little over the top but I respected Fremont throughout the book and lauded her decisions.

Dianne Day has done a very smooth job of integrating real life events with this series in a way that keeps the momentum going, easily setting up the next few novels.
