In the more shadowy corners of the world, frequented by angels and demons and everything in between, Laytham Ballard is a legend. It's said he raised the dead at the age of 10, stole the Philosopher's Stone in Vegas back in 1999, and survived the bloodsucking kiss of the Mosquito Queen. Wise in the hidden ways of the night, he's also a cynical bastard who stopped thinking of himself as the good guy a long time ago.

I think there was more foul language in this book than in the entirety of everything I have ever read combined.

Bavaria, 1776. When Albrecht Dürer the Much Much Younger's frog prints go missing, he knows exactly where to turn for help. Gretel (yes, that Gretel), now 35 and still living with her gluttonous brother Hans, is the country's most famous private investigator, and she leaps at the opportunity to travel to cosmopolitan Nuremberg to take on the case. But amid the hubbub of the city's annual sausage festival, Gretel struggles to find any clues that point toward the elusive thief.

What did you like best about Gretel and the Case of the Missing Frog Prints? What did you like least?

I liked the fairy tale connection

Would you recommend Gretel and the Case of the Missing Frog Prints to your friends? Why or why not?

Not really - it got long and I tired very quickly of how much food discussion there was and how foolish the brother was made out to be.
