I found this novel to be really enjoyable to read. Considering I live in Massachusetts, I found it fun to read about Carlotta's cases in Boston. She is an interesting character (she plays volleyball and drives cabs in her spare time!) It is fun to read about her punk tenent upstairs, Roz and many other people she knows. Plus, the storyline is not predictable at all. If you are looking for a good read, I think this novel is worth reading.
