Her mother Hilda had motive to kill him too So did Porn Shop Bill Yes that is another flamboyant character Or did the thieves terrorizing the neighborhood do Curt in? Hamlet begins knocking off books from shelves as clues to the killer's identity just as he did in Double Booked for Death and Darla pays attention to the clues this time Darla knows where she fits in Hamlet's hierarchy but that might change since both she and Hamlet find themselves in dire trouble trapped by the killer This 2nd installment was so much better than the series' debut novel And I got fooled again it wasn't who I thought The characters are much developed and Robert is truly delightful He made me laugh and shed a tear I'll need to read the next one soon
