The Spook Lights Affair by Marcia Muller & Bill Pronzini

Earlier this year I enjoyed the first Carpenter and Quincannon Mystery novel, The Bughouse Affair, by authors Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini. Set in 1800’s San Francisco it features two detectives and the cases they encounter. I was thrilled to enter their world once again in the Spook Lights Affair. While each can be read as a standalone, there are overall arc threads. Mini review: suspenseful, and engaging with spirited characters. A thoroughly entertaining mystery.
