By Donna Andrews

This is another in the Meg Langslow mystery series.  I enjoy reading these books.  Partly because I enjoy the wisecracking heroine.  We hear her thoughts and she usually makes me laugh.

One of Meg's friends she hasn't seen for sometime, drops by one morning and asks if Meg can watch Timmy for a "little while."  Meg agrees and so starts a roller coaster of events.  The friend disappears, there are allegations of theft from the college where Meg's husband, Michael, works, there is murder and mayhem as usual.  Is there a mob connection?  Will Timmy be living with Meg and Michael forever?   

Donna has truly created an ensemble company of characters who work  well together.  Meg's father and newly found grandfather always add spice with their animal rights projects.  Meg's mother is a force to be reckoned with, and her brother is the geek.  The reader is always entertained and if you enjoy a good mystery, there is always one of those as well.  What do you think?
