'Bait and Switch,' Andrew McAleer's latest James Hillton-Sophia Blossom mystery, is a funny, fast and mysterious read. Filled with fun word play, it takes the reader from Boston to Connectictut, from high powered offices to the places where the homeless hang, in a short time and page span. There are some good take offs of popular song titles like 'Behind Blue Bars,' which riffs on the Who's 'Behind Blue Eyes.' And the scene where Hillton reminisces about his Nana's death and then her calling him on the phone was very poignant. The mystery involves a car insurance scam and is clever, but really just a vehicle (no pun intended) to allow these characters their humorous moments in the spotlight. All in all, a good, quick and humorous read. And please pass the Tab (you have to read the book to figure that one out).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
