"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The mystery was far more interesting than the second one, but didn't have as many twists and turns as the first. I still wasn't sure who the villain was until it was revealed, but I was pretty sure who it was NOT.
The portion of the book dedicated to the sub-plot of the library cat, Sneaky, going missing was well-done. It didn't detract from the original mystery, but it wasn't an annoying little thing either.
The one thing that really got to me by the time I got to this last book was the main character's emphasis on her weight. Now, I will say that I'm predispositioned for this to be something that gets on my nerves, but I felt like it was just mentioned too often. They live in a town where she walks almost everywhere, so she's getting a lot of exercise, and yet she's constantly talking about her weight and watching the sugary desserts and this and that. I'm all for eating sensibly. I may be fat, but I do try to eat more healthy than I ever have before, but I also do not see the point in completely depriving oneself of desserts (unless you have a food allergy or diabetes or something like that). And if she lives in a town where she's getting that much exercise, then she shouldn't have to worry about eating dessert or a donut a couple of times a week.
That's a topic I can easily get on a soapbox about, so I'm going to stop now. This book was definitely better than the second. If there's a fourth, I'll read it. :)
