I liked this book, but it took awhile for me to get into it. I think it was the same problem that I had when reading Margaret Maron's Death's Half Acre--I've been sick, and just not into anything much--maybe I should have waited to read it.

I like Elliot, his relationship with his ex-wife Sharon, his relationships with and puzzlement of his young adult staff, and his absolute devotion to classic comedy movies. Here & there, why Elliot kept pursuing the 50-year-old murder of the wife of one of his favorite actors didn't always make sense to me, but when one is very devoted to one's heroes, one occasionally does things that don't make sense. There are two main mysteries in this book, and I like the resolution of both of them.

I look forward to reading the next in this series, A Night at the Operation, due out in April.
