Standard mystery, more exciting toward end
4 November 2004 | by vchimpanzeeSee all my reviews

Yet another prostitute has been murdered. This one was found at the St. Louis Hotel in a city never named (though the credits say Calgary). All the victims appeared in photos in George Kendall's book. Motive: sales of the book went up after the murders.

Raymond Garrison is about to retire as prosecutor, and Carolyn Price, who was at a fund raiser for her women's shelter when the latest body was discovered, is next in line for the job. Elaine Taylor takes Kendall's case, even though she is not a partner and has no experience in murder cases. Jim Miller wants to let Dan Goldberg take over, but Elaine asks to be given a chance.

I thought both lawyers came across as determined and intelligent, even though both showed a lack of judgment at times. In fact, someone said Elaine's behavior could have gotten her disbarred. Still, this was an interesting mystery when it wasn't boring, with some action and excitement toward the end.

We think we know who did it. We are never told for sure ... the person who might be guilty could have been framed. The ending does not wrap everything up neatly.
