The Alex Cooper books will never set the world on fire. If you want gritty, real life crime stories then look somewhere else. These are all set in places like museums, art galleries. This one involves rare coins.
It was OK, I found myself asking why I was reading these books when I got to the end. I swear I will scream if she has to re-tell the story about her old fiance one more time (yes I realise not everyone has read all of the books so she has to re-cap, but even patrica cornwell can dress things up differently when she does it).
I guess I'm still reading these in the hope that Alex and Mike will finally give in and jump into bed together - but that will probably never happen.
