Trigger warning: If you don't like cruelty to animals, this may not be the book for you. Proceed with caution.
Jim's final case is tracking down the man who killed his mom. There are some coincidental circumstances in this one that are, well, coincidental, but it's not drawn out for too long and the story moves right along at a quick pace. The resolution was a bit convenient, but also touching in a way since it ties up a couple of the plot lines concerning Jim's family without being sentimental. Jim is just as snarky and conceited as always.
