That said, the series, to date, reached its peak somewhere around "F" or "G" and held its top form at least through "L." This one is my pick for best of the lot-which is saying a good deal. The book features a temporarily subdued Kinsey (still smarting under a career setback encountered in a prior book), the usual cast of rich snobs, an unusually intriguing puzzle whose vital clues I spotted but nevertheless failed to piece together, some unusually likeable supporting characters, and a lot of Santa Barbara (oops Theresa) atmosphere. Next time I point friends at the series, this is where I'll tell them to start. Highly recommended.
