    Who will die next before the Grendel secrets become known?

    Jack Grendel is running for U. S. Senate in Minnesota. His father, Herman Grendel, is a Duluth shipping magnate. First Lars Olson a consultant for Grendel Shipping is murdered. Then Herman is murdered right after he pulled his financial support from Jack's campaign. Sophie is a food critic and old family friend of Amanda, Jack's sister. Sophie and her husband Bram, a radio personality, attend the reopening of Amanda's restaurant Gasthaus Rethenau. Sophie is also good friends with Luther, Amanda's husband. Luther is quite ill and becomes the police's favorite suspect. Is he being framed? When these two murders rock the Grendel family and possibly Jack's political campaign, Sophie begins to investigate. At each murder a line from a children's poem is left. Sophie tries to figure out who the next victim is before there are more murders. Unfortunately she is not successful. Then Sophie begins to receive notes with clues about the murders. Bram and Sophie stay at Amanda and Luther's for a few days. Bram is working on his new novel and needs solitude. Sophie continues to investigate. Sophie finds out some information she isn't sure she wanted to know. Both Bram and Sophie end up in danger. Who is behind all this? Can one of her oldest friends be a killer? This is a great series. This is one of the earlier books I hadn't read. I enjoy Sophie and her many antics. She always ends up in the thick of things. Being that she is a food critic, food is always an integral part of the story! Then there's Nathan, her ex-boyfriend, who has recently returned. What's his story? The Minneapolis setting lends charm to the story. This book has many twists and turns and comes to a climactic ending. I highly recommend this book and series.
