Fiction. Mystery. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:From the award-winning author of The Passenger comes the first novel in the hilarious Spellman Files mystery series featuring Isabel "Izzy" Spellman (part Nancy Drew, part Dirty Harry) and her highly functioning yet supremely dysfunctional family of private investigators.
Meet Isabel "Izzy" Spellman, private investigator. This twenty-eight-year-old may have a checkered past littered with romantic mistakes, excessive drinking, and creative vandalism; she may be addicted to Get Smart reruns and prefer entering homes through windows rather than doors??but the upshot is she's good at her job as a licensed private investigator with her family's firm, Spellman Investigations. Invading people's privacy comes naturally to Izzy. In fact, it comes naturally to all the Spellmans. If only they could leave their work at the office. To be a Spellman is to snoop on a Spellman; tail a Spellman; dig up dirt on, blackmail, and wiretap a Spellman.

Izzy walks an indistinguishable line between Spellman family member and Spellman employee. Duties include: completing assignments from the bosses, aka Mom and Dad (preferably without scrutiny); appeasing her chronically perfect lawyer brother (often under duress); setting an example for her fourteen-year-old sister, Rae (who's become addicted to "recreational surveillance"); and tracking down her uncle (who randomly disappears on benders dubbed "Lost Weekends"). But when Izzy's parents hire Rae to follow her (for the purpose of ascertaining the identity of Izzy's new boyfriend), Izzy snaps and decides that the only way she will ever be normal is if she gets out of the family business. But there's a hitch: she must take one last job before they'll let her go??a fifteen-year-old, ice-cold missing person case. She accepts, only to experience a disappearance far closer to home, which becomes the most important case of her

Totally, completely enjoyable. It's great to follow Izzy Spellman and her family because they're eccentric without being overly adorable. There are a lot of laughs in this book. Highly recommended for a vacation read.

But a word to the hardcore mystery fans: this didn't strike me as being about untangling a complicated web of clues. As Isabel says in Chapter 2 (The Interview), "The truth about the PI is that we don't solve cases. We explore them. We tie up loose threads, perhaps uncover a few surprises. We provide proof of a question for which the answer is already known."

So don't expect Agatha Christie; it's more about a family of private investigators than it is the actual private investigating. I'm looking forward to getting to know them better in the next few books. ( )

Throughout the whole book I was so damn frustrated with the characters. Somehow, this did not make me hate the book. Must be magic. ( )
  blueskygreentrees | Jul 30, 2023 |
I really like this introduction of a series. I enjoyed how it was written like case files. What a quirky family & how irritating to be investigated all the time by your own parents. I look forward to reading the next book in the series ( )

Funny! The audio book was well-read. ( )
