This was a reread of the laugh-out-loud funniest, and my favorite, of Donna Andrews' Meg Langslow mystery series. In this one, Meg is temporarily filling in as receptionist at her brother's software company, Mutant Wizards, which is working on a new edition of the game "Lawyers From Hell." To complicate things, this wacky company has to share its office space with several psychotherapists, who are just as wacky.

The murder mystery starts when the office prankster, who likes to lie on top of the electronic mail cart pretending he's dying, is murdered for real, and it's up to Meg to find out whodunit, since the police chief has decided that her brother, Rob, is the prime suspect.

With pink teddy bears who spout affirmations, a one-winged buzzard who lives in the lobby, an assortment of dogs belonging to the techies, a biker type who has become a holistic veterinarian, and a wonderful variety of eccentric geeks and shrinks, not to mention Meg's mystery-obsessed dad, this makes for a lighthearted, fun read for anyone who enjoys humorous mysteries.
