Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Borger's diverting second mystery featuring Minneapolis Citizen reporter Marguerite "Skeeter" Hughes (after 2009's Where's Billie?), editor Thom Savage successfully pitches for a missing persons beat, and Skeeter gets the assignment. When 70-year-old BJ Jones, an ice fisherman, tells Skeeter that he caught, then lost, a human hand in Lake Harriet the previous fall, Skeeter winnows the possible victims to three people: Amber Thomas, a young black woman who lived with her grandmother; Yuri Yudeshenka, an elderly furrier who emigrated from the former U.S.S.R.; and Pace Palmer, a research coordinator for a medical device company. While Skeeter chases leads that connect to exotic animal trafficking and whistleblowing, husband Michael Marks, a reporter for the rival St. Paul Post, walks out on her and their two daughters. Skeeter's dogged reporting sparks more than one violent response in a regional mystery with appeal to readers beyond the Twin Cities. (Aug.)
Claudia Kittock
This is Judith Yates Borger's second book in this series, and it is even better than the first. Skeeter is a heroine every working mother will love. Her abilities as a reporter/sleuth are always in conflict with her mothering. There are no magic answers, but she makes it all work.
The plot is fast-paced and exciting. She writes with great clarity and fun. It's a book that is difficult to leave alone. I love this book. I love these characters. I raced to finish it, yet hated to see it end.
