It was a close call between a three or a four star rating. Not the best in this long running series, and a farfetched motive for the murders to put it mildly. It was nice to have Herb Jones back, however briefly, but several things did not make sense. The people in Susan's golf threesome heard the shots of the first murder, but said they had no information when questioned. Why? The homeless denizens of Charlottesville's Downtown Mall are remarkably mobile, getting around the area with little difficulty. There were also multiple mispronounced names that were jarring - Sabato, Taliaferro, Cabell, and, most inexplicably, Monticello. The story lacks the high energy RMB generally brings to her stories. Still, it was enjoyable enough to while away a lazy Saturday.
Rita Mae Brown is one of my favorite authors. Beautifully grounded in both superior storytelling abilities and classic whodunit construction, this is an extremely entertaining mystery. The narrator is equally excellent
- probably one of the best that I have ever heard. I can hardly wait for Ms. Brown's next book to be available on Audible.
Although I understand why the Revolutionary War part of the book is important, I buy these books because I love Harry and the other main characters. I miss her friends being a big part of the story. I miss Miranda. I miss the others. I did not want so much of the book to be taken up with the War story. Disappointed in that.
Yes, I really love her narration.
I probably would, but others are better.
Get back to the main characters we come to love.
This book was way to slow for my liking. There was nothing exciting or intriguing to keep me interested. I don't believe I will continue on with these books.
