The Puzzle Lady just can’t stay out of trouble.

Cora is shocked when she finds out that Minami shows up in town looking for her. Turns out that Minami is known in Japan as The Sudoku Lady, and one of Cora's Sudoku books has recently topped hers on the best seller list.

Then a dead body turns up in town. It looks for all the world like a tragic accident, but Minami insists it was murder and challenges Cora to a race to solve the crime. Then a second body turns up, and Minami is arrested for the crime. What's behind the latest murder spree? Is Minami really guilty?

As always, this is a fast passed, fun book. While we weren't quite back in the old patterns of previous books, we were downright close. (Please, make Dennis a victim in the next book!) The book seemed to bog down in the middle with too many scenes of Cora going from person to person and getting frustrated she wasn't learning anything new.

But things picked up in the final 100 pages, and the climax was once again over the top, but in a fun way. The solution was logical and not quite out of thin air. And the humor and word play was as constant a part of the book as always.

While not the best entry in the series, this book will certainly entertain the many fans of the series.

I really like the Puzzle Lady books and own all of them. Although I found this story is convoluted and in spots, somewhat silly, I still enjoyed it.

Cora, the Puzzle Lady, is confronted by Minami, the Sudoku Lady. Minami is upset because Cora's sudoku book was out selling her sudoki book in Japan!

She has come to America to challenge Cora. A woman has been found dead from a head injury and it has been decided that it was an accident. A rumor has it that she was having an affair. A perfect case! Minami says it was a murder and that she will solve it before Cora does! (Minami says it's always the husband. However, the husband in question was in jail, dead drunk!)

A second death occurred, and Minami is arrested for it because a sudoki puzzle was found by the body. Minami is released for lack of any real evidence; she didn't know the woman, and certainly didn't have any reason to kill her. Her niece, who came to America with her, is supposed to keep Minami out of trouble. It's difficult as Minami goes merrily on her way, supremely sure that she is on the track to a solution.

Another death, this time of a woman who tried to blackmail several people about the second death. Sudoku and crossword puzzles are used as blackmail letters!

Of course, it finally becomes all clear to Cora, and things end well.

I didn't like it as much as I have Hall's other Puzzle Lady books, but it's still an entertaining read.

I have read most of Mr. Hall's books. In general I find them to be light, fluffy, and fun to read. This one is an exception. I found it insipid and moronic. The "banter" (if you can call it that) was what you might expect from third graders. The characters continually make idiotic decisions for no good reason. The resolution, where Mr. Hall has all the characters come together so that Cora can identify the murderer, in the past has been a clever and interesting part of the book. In this case it must have had Rex Stout turning over in his grave. The only reason I gave it two stars is that I enjoyed doing the sudoku puzzles. I am happy that in Mr. Hall's next book he returns to Stanley Hastings as the main character. I liked the the Stanley Hastings books more than the puzzle lady books anyway, and it appears Mr. Hall has run out of clever ideas for the puzzle lady.
