    I've now read all four novels in this newspaper reporter series set in St. Louis. I enjoyed reading all four books.


  • Chris Conley

    I found out about the Francesca Vierling books from . I am so glad I paid attention. This is a good solid mystery with two puzzlers. The main mystery has the added benefit of asking the question "are there people who we don't mind seeing murdered?" The solution is well done. I will read more of her books.


  • Mary

    The story started strong and then just went on and on. By the end of the book, i had forgotten one of the story lines until she brought it up to bring to a close.It was a good mystery, just drawn outus, the HIPAA law did not infringe any of her medical contacts revealing information to her.


  • Ed

    #4 in the Francesca Vierling series. Author Viets wraps up this series with an above average entry. The series could probably have limped along for another entry or two, but columnist Francesca's professional life and her love life have reached logical stopping points for the series.

    Another great Francesca Vierling mystery set in St. Louis! What can you say when the murder victims (docs and other medical folks) are such horrible people to those around them that it's hard to find any sympathy for their deaths? This is what Francesca and the others around them are struggling with - but fear that the killer may take out innocent victims prompts her to once again try to find the killer.If you live in St. Louis, you'll love the clearly identified locations, and have fun trying t [...]


  • Leslie aka StoreyBook Reviews

    The last of a 4 book series about Francesca Vierling, a 6' reporter for the St. Louis Gazette. I never understood why she continued to work for the newspaper considering everything that she went through from the editors at the paper. However, she did what she had to do and managed to solve crimes along the way. Most of the time she just stumbled upon the killer or it wasn't who she thought.The series isn't bad, just not my favorite by Elaine Viets


  • Judith

    I finally made it through all four, thank heavens. This one probably ranked in the top two of the four, but was still weak and (to me) boring; however, I got a lot of St Louis prompts from the series, which encouraged me to look up numerous fun things about the city.


  • Brenda Kirton

    Someone is killing cruel or negligent doctors. Who would think of such a thing. This is the first in this series that I have read. It was an excellent story. The mystery wasn't the type you figure out, but the story was compelling.


  • Marion Nichols

    Love Elains humor and precise writing. Her well developed characters and plausable plots are great.Love Elains humor and precise writing. Her well developed characters and plausable plots are great. She needs to include the City Museum and the Snoiwflakey Lady in the next one.


  • Mary Newcomb

    Various cancer professionals are being killed, our intrepid reporter Francesca Vierling can not resist solving this mystery. Along the way she also writes interesting columns about a male stripper and some other intriguing people of the St Louis area.


  • Susan

    The story moved along quite nicely, but I think I'm getting tired of cozy murder mysteries. Doesn't anyone trust the police to investigate?
