A very good, well-plotted mystery, though thick reading at times. I was introduced to gay P.I. Marco Fontana in the second book, “A Body on Pine” in the series, which I enjoyed greatly. In fact, I may have enjoyed the sub-plot more than the main plot because author DeMarco has created such an interesting cast of characters, that you want to know more about their lives. Mystery lovers will enjoy reading this novel, not to mention fall in love with Marco Fontana!
