by Linda Fairstein
This was the title selected for the June 2014 Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group sponsored by the libraries, and I've got to say, I really enjoyed it very much. Even though it's the 15th volume in a series, I didn't feel like I was lost in the introduction to the characters. The police procedural portion of this novel felt like a Law and Order episode, while the intense relationship plot elements felt more like a soap opera. All that aside, though, Fairstein's detailed descriptions of Central Park -- its layout, its history, its..."character" for lack of a better word -- are what make this book a winner. Having never been to New York City, let along Central Park, I felt after reading this novel that I new a lot more about this exotic locale than ever before. I may not continue with this series, but I highly recommend this individual entry! recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library - See Scott's Review Profile.
