    Sadly, this one's composed of cardboard characters which are impossible to care for or invest in. Sheila York seems to have some ideas about how a mystery writer is supposed to write, but has no compulsive need to tell a story herself. She immediately introduces the vague amateur sleuth who is immediately introduced to the lady who immediately becomes the murder victim and we immediately meet all the characters who could have done the deed. Then we slooooowly wander around for three hundred plain pages searching for clues, which of course lie in the tricks of 1940's radio (a setting the cover suggests will be sultry, mysterious, atmospheric. Alas, it's not). I do not believe Sheila York is very old, and she may yet learn that mystery novels, like any kind of novel, must be written with a passion for the characters, places, and plots the novel investigates. Perhaps one day she will tap into something authentic and write a good novel. But this time I'll wait to hear about it rather than play the guinea pig.

    People are awfully chatty and trusting in these books. Lauren asks a single question and everybody just blabs on and on about exactly what she wants to know. Nobody seems to think it odd that a relative stranger is so interested.

    I thought this was a fun read for a rainy afternoon. An old time mystery with a cast of characters who had motives . Not crazy serial killers

    An interesting mystery but didn't have quite the distinctive capturing of place that made the first one work so well. Still, it was worth reading and I would read more by Sheila York.
