Right, onto the second of the Joanna Stark books and most oddly it’s set in England. It’s very strange to find an author who paints me such ace pictures of California telling me about London and Cornwall. I had reservations and it’s easy to pick holes in the locals ways of talking and acting but I think Muller did a decent job and after a while I got immersed in the story and stopped trying to split hairs with her.

Like the first book I don’t think the plot would stand up to a thorough dissection but I’m not interested in giving it one. On a mission to catch the same art thief as in book one Joanna has trouble sorting out which of her friends and enemies are which. I’m off to reread book three and complete the series.
