This is one of those series that I have a love hate relationship with. This book has to be one of my favorites in the series so far. This murder mystery is close to home, since Ricky is the main suspect.
The only thing I hated about this book was that Maddie felt the need to hide that she was investigating the murder on her own. I was also kind of bothered that she was investigating the murder at all, but she wouldn't be Maddie if she didn't.
I was also bothered by the use of "he" in reference to a MTF transsexual. If it had only been once, I would have let it go. If it had been all the time during the book, I would let it go even though it's incorrect. One paragraph had he, then the next would call her a female. Some consistency would be nice!
