Lutz Lisa

The Spellman Files

Simon&Schuster, London 2008


Lisa Lutz is a true follower of Janet Evanovic, adding the proverbial disfunctional Jewish family to the narrative mixture.and this cocktail is enjoyable, though a bit over the top in every aspect. 

The Spellman PI agency, consisting of the parents and their three offsprings, specialises in investigating each family member, taking turns at who is the most prominent victim of their interest. And here Izzy, 28 year old daughter, takes centre stage.

Supposed to be endlessly funny, the story soon becomes all too predictable. But it certainly is an easy read.
