Barry Maitland's first mystery, The Marx Sisters, won fans with its intricate plotting and charming characters, Kathy and Brock. Now, in The Malcontenta, Maitland has honed his mystery-weaving skills and created a nuanced, complex new thriller. Kathy has been reassigned to Family and Juvenile Crime and sent by her new boss to investigate an apparent suicide at a local naturopath spa. She can tell right away that there is a cover-up in process and calls on Brock for help. When Brock checks himself in as a patient, they both learn that spas are not always beneficial for one's health -- especially if you're a target for murder.

A excellent police procedural. . . . I didn't like his first, "The Marx Sisters," so I did not continue reading him until I picked up this second in the series.
