It has been awhile since I read one of these so that may have colored my view but I didn't really think of this as a mystery since the reader knew everything that was going on--the whole time--no real suspense as you know that Graves is not going to kill off any of her main characters, so it was really an exercise to see how they would each get out of their predicament. Also, the number and severity of each predicament was a bit hard to believe. If the rest are going to be like this, I may have finished this series.
