Veronica Mars: Mr. Kiss and Tell (Veronica Mars #2)
by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham
Vintage Books, 2015. 330 pages. Mystery.
Veronica Mars is back on the case as she investigates the case of a young woman who is attacked and left for dead at the Neptune Grand Hotel. Meanwhile, her father, Keith Mars, continues his investigation into the rampant corruption that has taken over the Balboa County Sheriff's Office. Will Veronica and Keith be able to find answers in time?
Fans of the Veronica Mars franchise will enjoy Rob Thomas' latest venture into the world of Neptune, CA. The story is gripping and moves at a quick pace, although some of what happens in the course of the investigation can be a little disturbing. You will want to have seen the TV show, the Veronica Mars movie, and read the first book before attempting this one - the new narrative references a lot of plot points from all three sources. I found that the writing wasn't quite as good in this book as it was in the first, but, overall, it was great to see what all the fine citizens of Neptune were up to one more time.
