This installment finds both Thomas and Nora on more solid footing as they adjust to the changes in their lives. Thomas has a new daughter, and Nora is dating someone and trying to figure out how to do the whole blended family thing.
And of course, there is a murder. A teen has been found day, and Thomas must help solve the case. Nora is only involved in the case in a slight way. Don't worry - she is still in the book.
Sten seems to capture the confusion and pressure on the teens quite well. The conflict that Nora feels over her relationship with Jonas is well done as well.
The mystery was pretty good too. The solution isn't easily guessed at but it doesn't come out of left field.
