Philly mystery

Amanda Pepper is an appealing heroine I can relate to. She is literate, concerned about her relationship with her police detective boyfriend and inquisitive enough to get herself deep into mystery solving. I definitely want to read the other titles in the series.Lots of local color, historical and literary asides.Good character development and intriguing mystery.

The Real Villain Is In Plain Sight

There are several likely suspects in this case such as the victim's first wife and the two children from that marriage who are seeking recognition and financial rewards. An abused son from the second marriage and a disgruntled franchisee from the victim's business have strong motives for revenge. If the reader looks close enough the real villain is in plain sight.One of the strengths of an Amanda Pepper story is the author's familiarity with Philadelphia. The action in this book takes place mostly in the Society Hill and Center City areas.

A Great Book!!

This is a really good book and one of the best in the series. Amanda Pepper is a well developed, funny character. She gets a little help from her policeman boyfriend and family. I recommend the entire Pepper series.
