I have now re-read the first 4 books. I liked them all. I like the way she includes LA and California history. It always makes me go research what it is based on.

I really enjoyed this complex plot. In this case though there was a bit of a twist at the end that i thought actually was unnecessary.
SPOILER ALERT



I thought the book could have ended with Ridgeway. In fact it took me a bit to link Michelle with Kellenberger but then i realized the link. I actually had to go back and re-read. This is on

77th STREET REQUIEM - G+
Hornsby, Wendy - 4th in Maggie MacGowen series

Despite the numerous suspects and motives, the murder of L.A. copy Roy Frady has gone unsolved for 20 years. Intrigued by the case, filmmaker Maggie MacGown hopes to do a documentary on it. But the deeper Maggie delves, the more she and those helping her are in danger.

Not quite as good as the previous three books, but still a good read.

I can’t remember ever not knowing that I was a writer. When I was in the second grade, because I was forever writing little stories, my teacher, a lovely woman named Barbara Heath, gave me her own copy of Little Women, to keep. Hardcover, illustrated, no less. The story wasn’t so much magic for me as was the character of Jo March. Somehow I knew Jo, I pretended I was her sometimes, and knew I was ...more
