STORYLINE: (See description for detail) Noah wakes up next to a dead body, oh no!
GOOD STUFF: Noah and his merry band of crime solvers are back! The movie references are also great in this edition.
Detective Javier (Noah's potential love interest) is also on the scene to help keep Noah from getting arrested. Their relationship continues to be pleasingly complicated, but they do find out more about each other. Overall, the set of characters are well-rounded and the reader gets a good sense of friends who care about each other.
IFFY STUFF: I liked the mystery, and this one is set up well (and not too over the top) and complicated scenes - including a car chase - are well written. However, the solution to the mystery is a bit perfunctory. Really, the killer could have been any number of people, the author just picked one and wrote a quick solution that fit.
CONCLUSION: It was a fun, if somewhat dark read. Noah is grappling with his health issues, so the tone fits. The many references to 90s culture, movies, tv shows, etc, are great. I look forward to the next book in the series.
