Ellen Hart writes a series of Jane Lawless mysteries. Jane is a restaurateur in Minneapolis who had wanted to be a private investigator until her brother almost dies in a case she was working on. In this latest book, Jane's ex-husband, Chester, returns to the city and is between fortunes (broke). Chester's new business is selling artifacts that may have come from the Baghdad Museum. Chester finds a buyer, but that person is murdered before the deal happens. Chester is now the main suspect. He needs Jane to find the killer, which she is reluctant to do. There are a couple of more murders, a street preacher, and the kidnapping of someone who is very close to Jane. We also find out how Jane financed her restaurants; a secret that Jane thought would never surface. This book had a lot of twists and turns that kept me guessing and entertained. I will now have to go back and read the series from the beginning. Check catalog for availability.
