Mini-review: I thought this book was great. Definitely preferred the lack of Theodora and Officers Harvey & Mimi.
I keep wondering, though, how much research the author had to put into these books to be able to give random facts about caviar.
I really like how each book adds new characters on to the old ones, so that the cast just keeps growing and growing.
Also, was there a gay couple in this book? The Talkie Brothers, who are both referred to as uncle by Ornette, but then Lemony says "They didn't look like brothers."
