Sounds like a good one! It does sound like it would make a great movie too! And I love stand alone books so I don't feel obligated to read more if I don't love it. :) Thanks for sharing!

I like the sound of a mystery within a mystery, I would be hooked until I found out who was behind it all.

Isn't it fun imagining who would play the characters in the movie version of a book? I also have a thing for the mafia - I'll have to check this out!

This is out side of my normal genre but it does sound good. I may have to give it a try.

Sounds like there is a lot going on in this book. I'd be interested to read it for myself.

Ice Cream... Murder. Sounds to me live a very sweet mystery.

PI stories are either really good or really bad. It seems there is no in-between with them. This sounds like a fun little mystery.

Liz Mays said...

It sounds like quite the puzzle to solve. I love when series books can stand on their own like that too.

Mommy 2 J.A.M. said...
