    1. Actually a pretty good read with the solution to the murder kind of obvious long before the end of the novel but that really was a minor point to the wrap up of a good story and I'm sure there are a few more to come


    2. Third mystery in the Mark Manning series. Good mystery regarding a death at a wedding reception with possible political campaign ramifications and a very limited time in which to solve it. Series has an unusual twist in that the main character is gay.


    3. Very goodEven the ending the usual airing of motives that usually happens in Agatha christie type mysteries was handled without being to noticeable clunky.
