A well written mystery taking place in thinly disguised Ithaca NY. In addition to well drawn characters and a believable story, it was fun to recognize the landmarks of the town I called "home" for twenty years. Recommended.
I really liked this book. It is an apparent series character mystery but I'd never read another in the series. The author did a fine job of integrating the earlier episode without detracting from the narrative. This was an engaging serial killer mystery story with well drawn characters, perfectly paced action, with the perfect touch of humor and romance. I highly recommend it to mystery readers and dog lovers.
