BOOK REVIEW:ANOTHER THING TO FALL
Private Investigator Tess Monaghan is enjoying the day out doing some sculling. She accidentally runs into the crew of the TV series Mann of Steel and expected to receive a lecture. Even though she did get yelled at she was offered an assignment.
Monaghan is offered the job by Flip Tumulty because it seems that something mysterious is happening on the set. In addition to small fires being set, there is a problem with the lead star who wants out of her contract. The production company has also received bad press and union threats since their arrival on the scene.
Tess really doesn’t need the work because she is kept quite busy at her detective agency. However, Flip also agrees to hire Lloyd who is the ward of her boyfriend. Tess is not too happy with this assignment. She has better things to do then to be a “babysitter” for a spoiled star.
The mysterious incidents start to escalate and a murder occurs. This is more in the realm of what Tess needed to get her interested in this job. Now she knows she must get down to work before another murder occurs.
What is going on? Is someone trying to shut down the TV production? Is there another reason behind all of this?
Laura Lippman has created a novel with some zany characters that will keep the reader interested throughout the book. The reader will also get some first hand knowledge as to what goes on behind the scenes of a TV production. This is a fast paced book to read and the plot will keep the reader engrossed. Laura Lippman has shown once again that she is one of the best at having her main character leading the investigative procedure. Be sure to add Another Thing to Fall to your reading list.
