It's rather a bitter sweet novel over all, there's one scene at a funeral which is brilliantly funny and had me laughing out loud. On the other hand, the final scene of the book is tragically depressing and ends the book on a little bit of a downer.
The book has hardly a mention of the other regular characters Kinsey knows, so there is no appearance from Henry and Rosie pops up only the once. That said, Kinsey finally cements her relationship with Jonah Robb whose wife, to both his and Kinsey's delight, as decided she wants an open relationship!
As I say this one isn't so light and "throwaway" as some of the other alphabet mysteries but is still very dramatic and very enjoyable.
