[Note: I listened to an abridged version of this book on audio.]

Meet Izzy Spellman, a woman with a checkered past and an unusual family business: private investigation. They take it to extremes, including spying on each other on a regular basis. When Izzy realizes that she can never have a normal life unless she leaves, her parents/bosses send her on one last assignment: a 15-year-old missing-persons case. The whole thing is very funny, especially Izzy's commentary on her past transgressions, but the ending takes a dark turn and comes across as very strange. I suppose it might have been leading up to a sequel, but on its own it left me a little bit unsure as to how I felt about things. But up until that point it was a lot of fun.
