Unravelling the mystery
»
Pretty good story. In the not too distant past, Lis testified at the trial of a madman, who has now escaped from the institution he has been in since the trial. As two different men pursue him, the original crime is unraveled.
Fast-paced and informative
»
Well written and informative look into the fast-paced world of a chef in a fine-dining kitchen. A glimpse into the vast amount of knowledge and skills necessary in this field, and an exploration the culture of the industry. Note the glossary in the back!
LOVE this series!

"Be Careful What You Wish For" picks up after the cliffhanger ending of "Best Kept Secret" and dives back into the lives of the Clifton family, now in the 1960's. Emma and Harry are leading happy and successful lives in London but trouble, as always, is coming. Not my usual style of books but I L-O-V-E everything by Jeffrey Archer, especially the ongoing saga of the Clifton/Barrington clan, now in it's third generation (at least!). You MUST read the earlier ones - I am so attached to these characters that I was in tears in the first 20 pages. In typical Archer style, ends with yet another huge cliffhanger - can't wait for the next one!

Funny mystery

An entertaining crime-solving story with a droll protagonist. Spenser is hired as a bodyguard for a Feminist (with a capital F) author who's received death threats. Soon Ms. Wallace is kidnapped and Spenser is in pursuit. Good story with a sense of humor.
