By this point in the series, Hugh should be dead about 100 times over. He just has this knack for getting himself into situations that he should see coming from a mile away. I'm not entirely sure how he ever actually solves a mystery. My favorite character at this point just might be Hugh's horse, Bruce.
All of that aside, I'm still reading the next book. They are quick light reads. I have all of the available books in e-book form. They are my bedtime books.
