In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.
The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove—or prove—the woman's story.
The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying—but who? And why?
In the second book in the Veronica Mars series it takes off not long after the first book ended. This time Veronica must find out what happened to the girl in the hotel room who cried rape. It looks like the girl is keeping secrets, and no one can figure out how she got out of the hotel at all. Now, Veronica and friends are going to figure out what happened to her no matter what. But Veronica is also having problems in other areas of her life, and with the election coming up for Sheriff things aren't looking so great. But Veronica must figure it out before time runs out.
This book was a great addition to the Veronica Mars series. Although, this one did seem kind of repeats the first book in some ways, it was still really enjoyable. I'm anxious to see what happens next to Veronica, espeically when it comes to the Sheriff.
But this one was a great way to express everything that I enjoy about Veronica Mars. It had great Logan and Veronica time, and a great mystery with Veronica coming out awesome as always. Now, I can not wait for more!
