The fourth book in the series was interesting enough but not as good as the first two books. Not enough Julia I think, too much Pete. Hitchcock is still interesting and puts his nose into stuff he really shouldn't. The case is somewhat interesting: a dead "au pair" babysitter, a cheating husband, a dubious religious organization. Lots of pieces that gel at the end into a solution that wasn't as satisfying as it could have been. I've come to except better from this series.
