The review of this Book prepared by Sarah Bryson
Teri on 11/13/2014 5:25:48 AM says: These books in the Fremont Jones series are one of those series that did not get its due. Fremont (a woman) is a lively character and this is one of three or four series that I would love to see made into a tv series by netflix or amazon. The character is very appealing, the plots are solidly written. This is one series I did not mind buying full price the minute the next book came out.
