To say i was disappointed would be an understatement. I love sudoku puzzles and quirky mysteries but this book did not hold my attention. Gave it to page 110 before readibg the last chapter.

This was a great book. I look forward to the entire series. However, there were lots of racial labelling and sterotypes of insignificant characters. How come someone has to be Latino or Black-why not just simply say their name and leave it that? Their race was a non-factor as well as the characters. If that continues through out the series, I will refuse to buy anymore. I love sudoku and so do Blacks, Latinos, Asians, Irish, and everyone else in the world. It may be okay to say where someone is from but to add in a sterotype is just insulting!

Hollywood publicist Liza Kelly is trying to ease out of her job catering to actors and actresses and figure out what to do about her marriage to Michael, a freelance writer so she moves back to her hometown of Maiden¿s Bay in Oregon. There she is establishing a reputation as a sudoku (number puzzle) master by creating puzzles for the Oregon Daily. Now she is back in Los Angeles for a sudoku tournament.------------ There she meets up with former TV. Star Derrick Robbins who wants Liza to be his publicist. When she sees Jenny she persuades her partner to take him on and that she will represent her. Derrick, a sudoku expert, tells Liza that he is finding odd bible messages about things that will happen in the Seattle Pospect sudoku puzzles. At first Liza believes he is a conspiracy nut but she changes her tune when he is killed. Back in Oregon, after decoding the messages and talking to the police who don¿t believe her about an upcoming apocalypse, a picture of a kidnapped Megan leads Liza to try to stop a catastrophe her husband and wannabe lover stay in Oregon looking for Megan.----------------- This is the start of a great new amateur sleuth series focusing on a mature protagonist who is tough when the situation calls for it and kind at other times. She can hold her own with the stars, the police and the men in her life as well as with the tough as nails publicist who owns the publicity agency where she still works. Kaye Morgan is a talented storyteller who will go far in the mystery genre.------------ Harriet Klausner
