    The Gingerbreadman, psychopath, sadist, genius, and killer, is on the loose. But it isn't Jack Spratt's case. He and Mary Mary have been demoted to Missing Persons following Jack's poor judgment involving the poisoning of Mr. Bun the baker. Missing Persons looks like a boring assignment until a chance encounter leads them into the hunt for missing journalist Henrietta "Goldy" Hatchett, star reporter for The Daily Mole.

    "A Little Boring, Still So Creative"
    Overall

    I absolutely LOVE this author’s style. Anyone who can take nursery rhymes and create murder mysteries replete with humor and satire is a major plus in my book.
    In the second installment of the Nursery Crime series, the Goldilocks and the Three Bears are caught in a national conspiracy and the Gingerbread Man is blood thirsty as ever. Obviously this is not a nail-biter (unless you suffer from Mother Goose phobia) but it is certainly clever.
    My only issue is that there are times when the story was a little boring and nothing irks me more in a mystery than when characters are introduced at the last minute who end up playing a pivotal role in the plot. I feel like it’s a cop out and it cheapens the story.
    In any case, I do recommend this book if anything for the humor and to marvel at the twisted lives of our much beloved nursery rhymes.
    Lastly, I will add, that the narrator of this book is AMAZING. Loved listening to every minute!
