Iris Anderson and her father have finally come to an understanding. Iris is allowed to help out at her Pop's detective agency as long as she follows his rules and learns from his technique. But when Iris uncovers details about her mother's supposed suicide, suddenly Iris is thrown headfirst into her most intense and personal case yet.
Anti-Semitism, murder mystery and romance are only three of the numerous topics touched upon by The Girl is Trouble. Iris Anderson makes a strong lead, although not a very good detective. Other than Iris, only a smattering of other characters are developed as it is told in first-person and she has no idea who to trust. Plot lines crisscross throughout and there are too many red herrings to count. Set in a very realistic World War II-era U.S. and captured with emotion and detail, I'd recommend this book to anyone who can keep track of many stories in one.
