Cece Caruso, vintage clothes aficionado and incomparable amateur sleuth, is back in her fourth adventure, Christietown, this time juggling wedding plans and a theater production she's written for the opening of a new housing development meant to mimic an Agatha Christie-esque English village. It's a fitting project for Cece, whose day job is writing about dead mystery writers she's in the midst of finishing her biography of Christie. The death of her leading lady disrupts the show and Cece is soon embroiled in the investigation. As always, Susan Kandel's voice is engaging and full of wit, and her characters are well-drawn. Christietown is not to be missed and if you haven't read the three prior books, get them all!
