Medieval forensic pathologist is on the track of 'Grave Goods" --
April 12, 2009 --
"Revenge of the Spellmans" by Lisa Lutz. (Simon and Schuster, $25, 375 pages)
The Spellman family, San Francisco-based private detectives, faces its latest crisis when daughter Isabel gives up detecting for bartending. She's in court-ordered therapy for misbehavior on a previous case and squatting in the basement of her brother's house.
She takes a case for a husband who wants to know where his wife is going "... and, typical of this series, the answer is nothing you would have expected.
Izzy's wayward teen sister continues to confound both her parents and the authorities, and spiffy brother David starts looking unkempt.
It's hard to know exactly what's going on. Just hang on tight and go along for the ride, trying not to laugh too hard.
