The Spellmans Strike Again: A Novel by Lisa Lutz
(Simon & Schuster, $25, 9781416593409)
"The fourth and final installment of the Spellman Quartet finds the Spellmans spying on each other more than they are for their clients. Mom is keeping tabs on Isabel's dates in the hopes that she'll get married. The kids want to know why parts of the house are disappearing. Could someone really be stealing doorknobs and light fixtures? Lutz has written a quirky and sometimes bizarre tale that's definitely good for a laugh." -- Anne McMahon, Boswell Book Company, Milwaukee, WI
