This novel was very much what I anticipated as I pre-ordered it. A beautifully expressed neutral opinion about the current political scene as we enter the final months of this 2012 election year.

I knew Sneaky Pie Brown (co-author) of the wonderful Mrs. Murphy murder mystery series, would give us her particular viewpoint of the issues that truly do concern the human population and animal world. This book covers the economy not only from emotional state but with hard, cold, and well researched numbers. We also look at the subjects of food, unemployment, farming, and more.

Many persons have commented upon the series becoming more 'opinionated' and other statements as it has evolved. That, in my feelings, is okay. This book was neither party geared. It was a true look at being in a democratic nation. The nod to the military and new immigrants was precious to me.

Sneaky Pie and her co-Author, Rita or C.O., has grown through the years, and I am proud to hope that I've grown with them. Yes, she has exercised her first Amendment rights to verbally state her viewpoint of politics, but it was done with the old-fashioned method of opposing discourses, which used to be how the two parties were able to fight and then go out for a drink together as pals. I, for one, miss those those civil days.

This is not a mystery, but, I am very pleased that I ordered and read this book. I look forward to where we go next, Sneak Pie and Rita...
