This book took me awhile to get used to. This is the last book I have read in the China Bayles series and consists of about 10 short mystery stories starring China. Since I am used to reading a long and involved book (and loving them) it was a bit of a shock to finish one story in half an hour. But once I had read a couple I found that I was really enjoying the book and finding that maybe reading this book after you've read some of the regular series could be a good thing in that you will be familiar with the cast and their histories. Don't miss it!
