Excellent story line and the plot twists are fascinating. However, by the middle of the book I had a very strong idea who killed the lady at the pharmacy, and it turned out to be that person. Still, some red herrings were there, but were they really red herrings?

And, unlike with the first book, Jane meets the terms of her uncle's will in this one. I would have been upset if the directors of her uncle's foundation had waffled in this book like they did in the first. Still, for readers of this book, don't believe everything you read at the end of a chapter, especially one chapter.

Looking forward to reading more from K.K. Beck.

Jane da Silva is a nineties woman with an eye for a good looking guy, an ear for a Cole Porter tune and a yen to get her Jaguar out of mothballs and hit the malls for some therapeutic shopping . Now, in the second da Silva mystery, author K.K. Beck adrroitly sends Jane to a foreign country (well, Vancouver is only 2 hours away from Seattle ,but you do have to exchange currency) for a cup of tea and a rendezvous with murder.
