    I skipped way too far ahead in the Goddard chronology with Long Time Coming so I’m glad to be back on track with this one Not that it matters what order you read his books in since they don’t trace the brilliant career of only one main detectivespecial agentlittle old lady with knife sharp intuition Goddard gives us someone new every time and this time it’s a “bad guy with a good heart” I t
