I haven't gotten very far into this story, but have been enthralled from the first sentence. I thought i might be bored, but it has me guessing already and we haven't even left her desk chair. It can only get better. I finished reading it. It kept getting better - so many red herrings - i couldn't stop laughing, even when I reminded myself every few minutes this was a fast paced thriller and a good mystery. Helen's sense of humor kept me laughing no matter how serious the murders got. There was so much intrigue, but so much "Helen" and her sense of the ridiculous to balance it and keep me reading.
