The Spellmans Strike Again by Lisa Lutz (Book Review 2010-71)

Product Description

The uproarious fourth and final installment in this New York Times bestselling, Edgar- and Macavity-nominated series about a kooky detective family.  (Don't believe this line:  the author now states that there will be more Spellmans!)

About the Author

Lisa Lutz is the author of The Spellman Files, a New York Times best-seller; Curse of the Spellmans, a national best-seller and nominee for both the Macavity and Edgar® Awards for Best Novel of 2008; and the critically acclaimed Revenge of the Spellmans. Although she attended UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, the University of Leeds in England, and San Francisco State University, she still does not have a bachelor's degree. Lisa spent most of the 1990s hopping through a string of low-paying odd jobs while writing and rewriting the screenplay Plan B, a mob comedy. After the film was made in 2000, she vowed she would never write another screenplay. A motion picture adaptation of The Spellman Files is in development with Paramount Pictures.

I adore this fun loving series.  I was so disappointed when I heard that the author was going to stop writing these, but she has reconsidered and there will be more books in the series.  The dialogue is what makes this book so special since some of it takes the form of a transcription.  There is a perfect mixture of action, romance and snarkiness to keep me turning the pages.  If you enjoy Janet Evanovich, you will love this series.
