Margin of Error

Edna Buchanan's Margin of Error was the fifth installment of the Britt Montero mystery series. In this case, Britt went undercover on a Hollywood set of a movie.  An actor went undercover for his role as a government agent posing as agent, when he came into Britt's life. Someone's now stalking him, which is now followed by mishaps, mysterious accidents and deaths, which had pushed the production over-budget. Someone's trying to sabotage the film and murder him, when nightmares haunted Britt from a man she had previously shot on a former case. This also pushed the actor and Britt to work  together, while this stalker went after them with a menace.  From the Miami Herald press room to a Hollywood movie set, there was a bunch of drama with a tropical locale appeal, when Britt cornered the killers and identified them to find out who caused a scene.

This was another fantastic mystery from Edna Buchanan. I did feel a bit apprehensive for Britt as far as I was concerned. I loved the Hollywood angle in this mystery.I loved the connection Brit had with the actor. I continued to love the backdrop of Miami to set the scene. I didn't like this possessive stalker who wanted to do him in and Britt as well. This had all the good stuff for a great mystery with drama and a spark of intrigue.

  2. I've been meaning to read something by this author. I think I have the first couple of books in one of her series. I can't remember which at the moment. Thanks for the great review!
