“Can't beat this book for price! I've enjoyed all the Larry Kelter's Stephanie Chalice mysteries and this one is no exception. Kelter has an antic brain and his murderer/monsters are truly original and inventive. The Chalice books are set in New York and he deftly weaves local color and culture into the stories.
This book seemed a bit of a reunion, bringing all his characters from prior books in for cameo performances (no spoilers). Stephanie is adjusting to pregnancy (yes, Gus's) and is her wise-cracking self. Handling pregnancy, Gus, family, loss, and job adjustments of motherhood, form a backdrop to a truly chilling series of murders.
Some reviewers have complained regarding the sex and language in Kelter's books, but, really, get over it. There is a lot of gleeful sexual banter and jokes, which I attribute to the freedom of the 99 cent ebook...”
