    • This was my first read in this series Like Hiaasen, the author keeps you with her all the way laughing Matturro has a fresh voice and lively style Lots of wacky characters that ring true, this was a little bit legal thriller and a little humorous mystery in the best of the southern detective genre I ll be looking for the early books in this series.

    • So sorry this is the last book in the series I thoroughly enjoyed it The last book was as good as the first.
