Book Review: Fountain of Death

Title Fountain of Death (Gregor Demarkian Series)
Author Jane Haddam
Rating ***1/2
Tags mystery, series, gregor demarkian, fitness clubs 

Another in the Gregor Demarkian series.. This one is set in a fitness club whose owners are about to take their business national.

Good story. This is the second of the series where the policeman in charge of the case is not one of the good guys. He calls Gregor in to investigate, then doesn't let him investigate, and uses the case to get his own name in front of the media as much as possible. At any rate, having, for the most part, reasonable and competent police is one of the most attractive aspects of the series. I never liked all the novels where the police are obstreperous and aggressively usless.
