Josie is definitely quirky and one of my favorite quirky characters. The story begins with Josie working two cases and through a plot twist (and there were many) and a returning villain (I love when that happens.) the cases changed.
Like all of Fraser Brainerd's and Fraser's mysteries in this series, there is a paranormal element. I felt it was even more so in this mystery. The ending is unexpected and satisfying.
Fraser Brainerd and Fraser are a great writing team. Their writing is crisp, entertaining, and kept me captive even while on a Caribbean cruise with its many activities. It is an outstanding mystery. I look forward to the next José Picada novel. May there be many more.
For anyone who has read all three in the series, in addition to the main recurring cast there are a few cameos from pre-established characters. I don't want to spoil anything but there may or may not be a DEATH as well! (Or maybe I am tossing that in to get people to read it.... HMMM!) There actually is so much going on in this particular book - I keep trying to think of things to mention, and realize five more unrelated moments that I loved. Ummm, Miss Scarlet, a vaguely-Kardashian-like reality family, and Bobby's brother with facial blindness all factor in... And I guess I'll close by saying that this book actually makes use of the Fibonacci spiral as part of its plot, and how many books can say that? :) HIGHLY recommended - but I say that about all three! Be sure to check out "Deception Al Dente" and "The Sound of Sirens" as well as other books by these authors!
This time insurance claimants are going missing and it is up to Josie P. Cates to discover the mystery behind the disappearances.
For me it is less the specifics of the case on which Josie is working than the fact that she is once again on the trail and in hot pursuit of (often supernatural) malefactors.
Josie is one hilarious, snarky female protagonist that you just never get tired of reading about. She could be alone in a room and still be funny. You never know just what thoughts are going to course through her mind or what words come out of her mouth, but you can be sure you will be captivated by her witty, oddly charming personality.
Another reason I love these books is because they are so well written. Fraser-Brainerd and Fraser’s prose is a delight! I never find myself getting tripped-up over words or phrases as I quickly devour these books. This to me means that the authors spend hours reading their words aloud, to make sure of their cadence. Oh, if only more authors would do this!
I highly recommend not only this book, but anything written by Fraser-Brainerd and Fraser, who have quickly captured my heart to become my favorite writing duo. Read anything and everything you can get your hands on by this brother and sister team. You’ll be extremely happy you did!
