    I recieved this First Reads Goodreads Giveaway book for an honest reviewMan Trap is the second book to a series of mysteries that are very close to the Parlour mystery format one of my favorite formats for mysteries In case you don't understand what I mean by Parlour mystery it's a subdivision to mysteries There is the Noir Mystery which usually has a private investigator and even the client is shady Think Humphrey Bogart amazing actor The Police Procedural which is basically a police procedural with an authority figure as the hero Patricia Cornwell James Patterson etc are Police Procedural authors And then there is the Parlour Mystery The main character is oftentimes a normal bloke perhaps an author like Eja Kane in Man Trap The main character can also be a police officer or private detective in some cases A lot of Victorian mysteries are Parlour Mysteries It's a mystery that isn't reliant on forensics but on the human condition I LOVE Parlour mysteriesSo Man Trap is what I consider a Parlour Mystery You have all of the main players in one central area with the main characters getting their noses stuck in things they honestly shouldn't be doing There is a lot of hints within the dialogue that can get the reader wondering just what really happenedThe one and only thing that bothered me will have to be the names All of them are pretty exotic Now I have an exotic name but I don't know nearly as many people with those kind of names in this book alone That said rich people do name their children very interesting names North West 'nuff said and the characters in this book are rich with all capital letters They are the old rich the blue bloods the Daisy to Gastby's world Yeah they are that kind of richSo for the fact of rich people naming children strange things I was able to push aside that little issue and read through The mystery isn't very big but the journey to the conclusion didn't bore me I liked Eja She reminds me of Castle without his geeky stride She gets her nose into things and says things without thinking She's also self conscious about the rich world being the only one without the check balance euivalent the theirsHer fiance' and longtime friend Deming Swann is an alpha male He's posessive of her and overly protective Yes Eja is clumsy but I don't think she's nearly as clumsy as Deming seems to think Deming is the law to her justice He's a lawyer and can get the items that Eja can't without breaking any laws In all they would make a great crime fighting duo if Deming wasn't so adamant about letting the police handle the murders Then again you always need that sidekick who complains but still does the jobTruthfully Man Trap was a fun way to see murder through the eyes of the opulent I was entertained and I wasn't confused with the characters despite it being a seuel Would I read of Arlene Kay? Perhaps I don't think I want to read the world of the rich so much but Eja was an interesting enough woman to want to revisit later on

    Eja Kane and Deming Swann are investigating murder again When Deming's aunt Persus Cantor as for their help proving that her grandson Dario Peters was murdered these two will run around town tracking down suspects and cluesDario Peters was a horrible man abusive to his wife Paloma Peters and swindling investors left and right While the police rule his death as an accident all the signs point to murder But who did it?Paloma the battered wife; Meeka Kyle the mistress; Merlot the psychic or the disgruntled business partners With so many enemies and so many motives it's a guessing game of who done itThe story was great it keeps you engaged to the very end I will point out however that I did not like Paloma's fate at the end or that Dario went from the scum of the earth to saint in a matter of seconds I did like however that in this book Deming wasn't as big a jerk as in the previous book he was only annoyingly over protective which given the previous book it's forgivableRating 4 out of 5ReadBook
