It's hard to say goodbye to characters I've enjoyed so much. I'll save it for a rainy day. Miss Z is once again embroiled in mystery when the apartment shared by her aunt and mother is broken into and the intruder killed. First one robber, then two are reported, throwing the police into confusion. DrLed Apr 25, I get the impression that this is the last book in this series and that is a good thing.
I did not enjoy this book as much as I did the first in the series. I think Miss Zukas has run her course. Miss Zukas is getting married but first she must solve the mystery of who broke into her mother and aunt's apartment. One man has fallen through the window to the sidewalk below but Aunt Em cannot remember as well as she used to and it isn't until a few days later that she remembers there were two burglers.
Then a burglar hits her mother and aunt's apartment while her aunt is home. The would-be burglar ends up falling four stories to the ground below. No one is really sure what happened because her aunt has significant memory lapses. When the police recover the body, there are still things missing from the apartment. The things stolen probably have more sentimental value than monetary value.
At the library, Miss Moon's bestseller display is not very popular among the local authors. This last installment brought back memories of previous installments as I read the book. There are still so many unanswered questions about what will transpire in the future. I also felt we never had complete resolution on on the final outcome of the person arrested in Detective Houston's case. I enjoyed the author's note at the end of the book.

Product Details About the Author. Young Sebastian Barth investigates the tangle of warnings and ominous accidents surrounding a famous actress visiting his home town. The story begins with a teen prom queen who has been found dead in a fleabag motel, apparently strangled after a night of drink, drugs, and kinky sex.

And sweet, innocent Teresa McLaughlin is in love with Whitman, but there's more to the romance than the usual teen hormonal attraction. So, despite his superiors' objections, Pete digs into the case more deeply and finds, to his horror, what really happened. I Hunt Killers. FIC Mac.
