4.0

First off, both mysteries are very well done and mostly satisfying. The solution to the overarching mystery is a bit stretched, in my opinion, but I'm willing to overlook it because the ride to get their was filled with enough happy solutions.

However, it is shocking to me that this author continues to dance along the edge of good and bad LGBT representation. This is now the second series (the first being The Word is Murder) where portrayal of gay relationships, people, and plot threads falls flat more often than I was comfortable. It's a complicated issue and one that I think, mostly, comes from a place of good intention. I will 100% continue reading this series and the other mentioned, but I'm not sure how far down this line Horowitz can go.
