"A compilation of two fast-paced mysteries: the titular, 120-page novella and a 40-page short story titled “The Kansas City Kennedys.” While readers may not uncover the “humorous escapades” promised by the jacket blurb, the quick pace and easy format—combining the novella with a short story—would be perfect for a day of airports and planes."
