The fifth installment in the New York Times best-selling series by Lisa Lutz, featuring the fearless private investigator Izzy Spellman and her quirky, yet endearing, family of sleuths.
For the first time in Spellman history, Isabel Spellman might be the most normal member of her family. Mom has taken on an outrageous assortment of extracurricular activities. Dad has a secret. Her brother and sister are at war, but neither will reveal the source of the conflict. While domestic disturbances abound, there is one source of sanity in the Spellman household: Demetrius Merriweather, employee of the month for 18 months straight.
Things aren't any simpler on the business side of Spellman Investigations. First, Rae is hired to follow a girl, only to fake the surveillance reports. Then a socialite has Isabel tail her husband, despite a conspicuous lack of suspicion. A man in a sweater vest hires the Spellmans to follow his sister, who turns out to be the socialite. Izzy won't stop hunting for the answers - even when they threaten to shatter both the business and the family.
Listeners are sure to love the next novel in a "series that keeps getting better and better". (Publishers Weekly)

There's a payoff, albeit a weak one

Hooray for Lutz and the Spellmans!
Absolutely. The plot is interesting and surprising. I laughed out loud many times, and find myself musing about the delightful mind that constructed these unusual and peculiar characters. As usual, the narrator is superb---I love anything she reads.
I enjoyed the combination of interest in the machinations of the Spellman family and the sub-plots of their "investigations." I felt impatient to know how the plot lines would unravel, but found myself disappointed when the book came to an end.
Every one of Christina Moore's audio books are terrific---This one was no exception. I could listen to her for days.
This book is hysterically funny, subtly chuckle-worthy---a great treat.
