Sleuthing Fun in San Francisco

Revenge of the Spellmans

Title: Revenge of the Spellmans
By: Lisa Lutz

Everybody's favorite thirty-something, Guinness-drinking private investigator with a checkered past is back in this third installment of the Spellman mysteries. Isabel Spellman continues to entertain as only she can in this heavily footnoted, case file format mystery set in San Francisco. Isabel's court-ordered therapy, insomnia, and secret new digs, along with the author's wry sense of humor kept me chuckling aloud as I read. Those familiar with San Francisco will recognize many of the locations.
