Poirot, Marple, Herald & Linden... a good read

Wow! Intriguing people... a lively setting and a story full of surprising twists and turns.

Reminiscent of my favorite Christie mysteries growing up.

Unexpected developments that all some how add up to an anxious glimpse at several intriguing parts of 1980's Los Angeles life, including peeling back the corner on an aloof, and oft-rumored underworld-ly  Korean community. 

Janis' wit and celebration of language makes it a smile-inducing read.

Reminds me of my favorite Agatha Christie novels of my youth but in a contemporary setting with people I might know and places I have been...

Compelling. Keeps you reading until the last sentence.
