Review: The Bughouse Affair

The Bughouse Affair
The Bughouse Affair by Marcia Muller
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I did enjoy this book, although strangely, I think I might have liked it better in print than I did in audio. I felt an odd disconnect between the characters and the voice narrators–they didn’t seem to fit, somehow. Of course, this is a personal preference and YMMV.

I liked the setting and the characters, though–Carpenter more than Quincannon–and the introduction of a reputed Sherlock Holmes. The time period was well-done and the plot moved along at a good pace. The ending left me a bit let down as there seemed to be a lot of explanation needed. However, I would read another book in the series–but I’d stick to print this time.
