P.C. and Mac are thrilled when Mac's dad invites them to join him on a business trip in Monaco, where he will be a speaker at the International Psychiatric Association Conference. They spend the beginning of their trip having fun: seeing the sites, relaxing on the beach, and eating at cafes. But their vacation fun is interrupted when Harriet Epstein-Hopper, who is also attending the conference, is murdered, apparently by a vicious serial killer known as Cyrano. Even though Mac's father warns them not to get involved, P.C. and Mac can't help themselves. Along with Juliette, the inspector's daughter, they determine to find out who really is responsible. Anyone who enjoyed the first two P.C. Hawke Mysteries is sure to like this one as well.
Even in my 30s, i really enjoyed this YA murder mystery. I listen to the audio version more than read it (i have more time to listen than read), and it is a very snappy story with a suspenseful plot. The teenage private eye PC Hawke and his companion Mac(kensie) are in Monoco and are on the trail of a murderer when someone in their hotel is killed. With the help of the chief inspector's beautiful redhead daughter Juliette (who although blind makes up for it with her other senses, primarily smell (trust me, it makes sense), and her brains) they track down this vicious killer. It has the right amount of scary scenes and suspense without being gory. The pace and dialogue is very good, and will keep an adult riveted as well (at least it did for me)Such a shame Mr Zindel (the author) died before publishing the last few manuscripts from this series. Every single one of the PC Hawke mysteries is a winner in my opinion!
