I loved Morgan's first two entries in this hilarious series but I was disappointed with this one. The humor seemed forced and the plot was muddled with too many characters. Also, the "bawdiness" didn't work for me and the gruesome murder half way through (I won't tell you WHO!) was enough for me to give up on the book altogether.

By the way, this book is VERY hard to find in the US. I had to order mine from a bookstore in Britain!

If you've read the others in this series, you know the truth behind the abstract above. Witty descriptions and unimaginable turns of events spice this third lusty book in the series. Totally unreal and thoroughly funny.
