    Cora Felton returns in her twentieth wild adventure (after The Purloined Puzzle, 2018), and it is becoming difficult for reviewers to come up with new adjectives to apply to her. Inimitable comes to mind, since she is (mercifully) "not able to be imitated." Just one of her is sometimes one too many—at least for those who cross her orbit. Not only has her ex-husband published a sensational tell-all memoir, Confessions of a Trophy Husband: My Life with the Puzzle Lady, but it has been optioned for film as well, and in a feeble attempt at gaining some control, Cora insinuates herself into the production as an associate producer. Instead of quiet on the set, there is murder, and although the "Milli Vanilli of Cruciverbalists" can't actually solve Sudoku or crosswords, she successfully dodges a bullet and manages to link four homicides to one suspect. The movie is eventually scrapped, but Cora manages to land on her feet in an ending that promises further adventures. The reader is left hoping that the police give Cora those Hamilton tickets she finds—in the course of disproving a suicide—as a reward. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
