    Billionaire genius Genoa Greeves never got over the shocking death of her favorite teacher, Bennett "Dr. Ben" Alston Little, murdered execution-style and stuffed into the trunk of his Mercedes-Benz. No arrests were ever made, no killer charged for the brutal crime. Fifteen years later, the high-tech CEO reads about another execution-style murder; this time the victim is a Hollywood music producer named Primo Ekerling.

    Corinne says: "Wonderful people - Decker and his wife and family"
    "A loose book"
    Overall

    The Mercedes Coffin starts with promised and weaves a good web of intrigue for the first half. However, Ms Kellerman finishes poorly with a loosely developed plot and conveniently uses death of main characters to avoid having to spin a reasonable web to answer the many questions regarding the crimes involved in the plot. She fails to bring the plot to a plausible conclusion, choosing instead to allow the main character to "guess" at what might have happened. Some readers may enjoy a book where many loose ends remain. However, this reader prefers an author, such as David Baldacci, who weaves a complex plot but closes the mystery with facts, rather than suppositions. I, for one, will not invest any more money or time in Ms. Kellerman books.
