The fifth in the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling, Edgar Award-nominated series about a fearless private investigator Izzy Spellman and her quirky, yet endearing, family of sleuths: “Lie back and enjoy this tale of intergenerational gumshoe mayhem” (Kirkus Reviews).
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SPELLMAN HISTORY, Isabel Spellman, PI, might be the most normal member of her family. Mom has taken on an outrageous assortment of extracurricular activities—with no apparent motive. Dad has a secret. Izzy’s brother and sister are at war—for no apparent reason. And her niece keeps saying “banana” even though she hates bananas. That’s not to say that Izzy isn’t without her own troubles. Her boyfriend, Henry Stone, keeps wanting “to talk,” a prospect Isabel evades by going out with her new drinking buddy, none other than Gertrude Stone, Henry’s mother. Things aren’t any simpler on the business side of Spellman Investigations. First, Rae is hired to follow a girl, but then fakes the surveillance reports. Then a math professor hires Izzy to watch his immaculate apartment while he unravels like a bad formula. And as the questions pile up, Izzy won’t stop hunting for the answers—even when they threaten to shatter both the business and the family.

Ms. Lutz does it again!!
If you like the Spellmans'; This is a must read. If you haven't read the series, it's a must. You have to read in order. The 1st is the Spellman Files. Very cleverly written. Mystery meets comedy. It's Stephanie Plum meets The Royal Tennenbaums'.
Couldn't read it fast enough
I read it in under 24 hours and I just adored it (like all the Spellman books). It did break my heart a little. But that's what great fiction does - it draws you in and makes you care (really care) about people who aren't, strictly speaking, "real". And that's magic.
I have loved every single one of the Spellman series. This one was no different!! Great book!
