Not the best in the series, but I still enjoy the Robin Paige mysteries. Somehow the Marconi wireless didn't make for as engaging a centerpiece as some of the other devices. Though I still like the writing and the fact that the husband and wife authors don't overwhelm their stories with too much romantic mush. Even though they are fond of complementing each other through their characters.

It’s always sad when one comes to the end of a beloved series. It’s somewhat less sad when said series has started to become less beloved and more ho-hum. I think Paige was right to end it when she did. Ever since she made the decision to give Beryl a voice, I’ve been less than thrilled with the books.
