KIRKUS REVIEW

Murder of a universally hated man at a desert hotel monks the honeymoon of Sue and Ty and a wave of amateur gumshosing lands them and their friends in a fine series of comic adventures, which resolve into serious entanglement when real detectives land on the scene. Ty's voluntary jailing provides him with a brainstorm --- and they trap the killer. Kinda funny, with moments of real amusement, but decidedly meringue flavor. On the whole, not as good as The Northa Meet Murder.
