I was pleasantly surprised with this book; the last few have been kind of ho-hum but this mystery was well thought out and un-ravelled well. The Yolanda character was a bit too high strung for me to really like her (don't understand Boyd's interest in her) but maybe I just don't remember her from the other books where apparently, she was mentioned.
Really liked the "cliff hanger" with Goldy and Tom. Looking forward to the next book!
