This was a great book. I loved the character development of all the old standbys and enjoyed meeting a couple of new characters. The mystery was good. I like the way this author keeps the tension going at the same time as following/leading all the characters through their plot lines. I know some reviewers were unhappy that there was no resolution on some of the romance threads but that was good for me. I hate a series where its a formula...have a little action, create a love story between two people, wrap up the mystery, everyone lives happily ever after. Brockmann doesn't do that....more like real life.
