Jo kicks major butt! I love this series, very well written. It keeps me laughing AND horrified at the same time. And please, let it not be said, EVER, that Mr. Hartness is afraid to kill a character!

Steven Lavendar has captured my full attention. Sherlock Holmes with a 'human' side. The plot kept me guessing and the cast of characters is very well developed. The action is not too fast paced, just enough to make you bite your nails a little. And the humor is placed just right in the story. A definite 5 star read! On to the second one....

Washington, DC: Twin brothers are found drowned in a Perspex box, one gagged and strapped to a chair. It's the latest in a series of cruel and elaborate murders with two things in common: the killer has left a family history chart at each crime scene, and the victims all have a connection to genealogical sleuth Jefferson Tayte. Hoping his insight and expertise will help solve the case, the FBI summon Tayte back to the capital. But as he struggles to crack the clues, the killer strikes again - and again.

Grabbed my attention from the beginning. The build up of suspense is gradual, frustrating, and very well orchestrated. I was literally on the edge of my seat at the end!
