Move over Serlock, Watson, Gibbs, Hotch, and Gordon and make room for retired travelers Madge and Paul Franklin as they show you how to solve a real murder while enjoying life. I found myself really enjoying the characters of Madge and Paul Franklin; they had an interesting relationship with each other both as husband and wife as well as partners in this clandestine operation. The decision to have a retired couple as the main character is something unique in murder mystery novels, so I found the concept to be intriguing and entertaining. My favorite part of the book was the Death Valley National Park scene near the end of the novel. Just WOW what an ending!
