Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a really well done book, IMO. The plot is unique for this series. Fortune stumbles on a cold case, a murder from many years before and decides to pursue it. The trail leads her and her buddies in many directions before she and the SWAMP team are able to chisel it down. Just when you think you know who it is, you find out it isn't. Punchy dialog and solid story development with a good smattering of humor thrown in. A really good whodunit.
