Not his best Coyne novels. A tad tired prose. Always delightful are the Coyne-Horowitz exchanges. Naturally the cat gave it away at the end. The book seemed to be dragging on after a while. No comments about the Evie- Gloria-Alex conundrum (is there something there that we should be aware here?). All in all Coyne always was a delight to visit. I'm sorry that this was is last visit (Tapply died July 28 2009). It's like I've lost a good friend.

"Outwitting Trolls is the 25th and final novel by the late William G. Tapply featuring Boston lawyer Brady Coyne. Tapply wrote other books, good ones, but Coyne was the character closest to his heart, and it’s clear from the first page that he saved one of his best plots for his last book."

Saddened to learn of the death of this long-favorite mystery writer.
