This book just did not work for me. I've been unimpressed with the direction the last couple of SP books have taken and this one may be a bit better, at least Morelli and Ranger may brief appearances, but the overall direction of the books is just, well, plain stagnate. If you've read the last couple it is the same old thing, nothing really new, just another zany adventure with Stephanie. I borrowed this from the library and so glad I didn't purchase it. I suggest you do the same.
