A great mystery! I really appreciate this case being in a single book, instead of a trilogy this time. The trilogy was interesting, but I don't love Stevie as a narrator enough to not get tired after book two. This time, the characters have their relationships set up and it made it easier to focus on a truly insane mystery!

Returning to the Truly Devious world was an utter delight. Installment Four is a sharp and well-plotted summertime mystery -- perfect for someone (me) coming fresh off of a Mare of Easttown obsession! My main complaints lie in the ease of the discovery/reveal, but all in all, it remains a successful standalone addition to the series. Good stuff.
