Shell Game. Fans of character-based crime fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy this novel and the series. One case in this novel is a personal one in which Vic is trying to help her friend Lotty’s nephew, Felix, clear his name from a murder accusation. A second case involves the disappearance of Vic’s niece, Reno. I can’t recall a novel in this series where Vic did so much unpaid sleuthing. Stolen artifacts spice up the action, as does the connection of Vic’s ex-husband to the case. Loyal fans will anticipate that Vic will solve the case and get in harm’s way while doing what she does best. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Shell Game from amazon.com.
