This is the fourth book involving Suzanne and Roger Bowman. This time around they are contacted by a South American friend asking them to come and help because a police officer friend of theirs was being accused of murdering his partner in the force. Along with their nanny Bruce and new baby Robert, they fly off to Montevideo to try and solve the murder. Before too long however they find themselves knee deep in drug wars and money laundering. Can they use their world renowned powers of deduction and help their friend prove his innocence?
This is the fourth
Suzanne and Roger mystery I have read and once again I thoroughly
enjoyed it. Although it is the fourth, very little reference is made to
the previous mysteries so it works just as well as a standalone mystery.
I loved the introduction of Bruce, as Roberts nanny. He adds a whole
new dynamic to the mystery solving pair and it works well. I must admit I
did miss the bad puns at the end of each chapter but there were enough
sprinkled through the story to keep me happy. The story itself was fast
paced and full of action. These mysteries just keep on getting better.
Long may they continue!
