Someone is murdering nice, seemingly unoffending employees of The Lotte Goldman Show. Lotte Goldman switched careers from psychiatry to the sex talk show that has made her rich, and she likes to help immigrants. Now she and her intimidating producer DeAnna Kroll are juggling murder detection with a television road show.
Jane Haddam's characteristically interesting people make the book, especially an appealing couple divided by religion. The killer is well camouflaged.
Haddam looks at people more deeply than most authors, going beyond her multidimensioned people to their society and how they fit together. Her roots are in the mystery Golden Age and her head is in the wilds of the intelligensia.
