First of all, how can you write a Richard Jury mystery without Richard Jury? Okay, he finally showed up about 3/4 of the way through, but seriously, if I had one more character wishing he was there I was going to scream. I just didn't see the point to his being gone.

Overall I did like the book, but it definitely wasn't one of my favorites in the series. Johnny was a great character, and you felt such sympathy for him over Chris's departure. But why bring Chris back for a happy reunion with Johnny only to kill her off a couple of pages later? It didn't further the story along. It was just...mean. Like kicking a puppy.
