ah, this book is SO good. so very good. a mystery wrapped in a character study with lots of good nuggets about human nature. i like my detectives sharp but not perfect, wise but not smug. my friend pw says she'd like to marry armand, and i would, too!
fortunately for me (or maybe not, depending on how you like your mysteries), i wasn't sharp enough to see past all the red herrings penny leaves...and there are a gracious plenty. so i enjoyed trying to figure this one out with every twist and turn. and how cool is it that her title actually gives away the ending...but not 'til the ending.
