From Booklist
Veteran youth author Francis' fourth fast-paced mystery-thriller for adults once again takes place in Key West. Past efforts have featured a rookie private detective and a foot reflexologist, and now we have singer-songwriter Bailey Green. Each of these spunky and complex heroines is in the process of remaking her life. Just as Bailey arrives at the Key West airport, the body of her benefactor, Francine Shipton, is found lying at the foot of a stairway in her Eden Palms mansion. As usual, Francis has assembled an interesting and eclectic mix of suspects, including a doctor operating a private clinic, a funeral director, a real-estate salesman, the victim's son, and Bailey's brother. The motive seems to be pretty clear, however, as Francine had plans to donate her mansion as a safe house for the homeless. When a homeless man also goes missing, Bailey tries to get police help and nearly ends up a victim herself. This is an enjoyable page-turner with quite appealing and realistic characters and a well-delivered social message. Any of Francis' three sleuths would be welcomed back in future novels. --Judy Coon
