While this novel has the usual phone book checks, library visits for news articles, municipal office visits for property ownership, surveillance details, and continuous commentary about Henry and Rosie, the novel lacks the suspense from dangerous villains on the loose, shoot outs, or even hand-to hand fights as in the previous novels in this alphabet series. The author now finds providing the routine details of Kinsey's life such as her usual morning runs as "boring". However, one thing this novel does have going for it is the familiarity that readers will have for previously established characters, the setting they live in, and the year that the action takes place in. Several story strands are interwoven into this novel. Take your pick which one you prefer, but in case Kinsey is still the investigator and the outcome depends on her actions.
