You gotta love a mystery with a Klemzer band called Dark Dreidel! Amos Parisman is a, ahem, mature guy who is semi-retired from detecting but whose blood gets going when his friend Pinky calls and asks him to look into why members of the band, especially Risa, have been disappearing.

I like the way Andy Weinberger writes. His novels have a slower, more methodical pace, but that doesn't mean you don't want to keep reading. This book got much darker than the first one in the Amos Parisman series, but it still kept me engaged.

Hopefully, he writes more books in this series.

Multiple twists and turns and with everything I had been expecting, I found myself surprised by the outcome. Really loved the background personal story of Amos and Loretta. A very worthwhile read. Will check out other works by this author.

Overall, a delightful and entertaining read! ...more
