Summary

Damien and Millie, the dynamic mystery-solving duo from The Green Pearl Caper, are back!

When Damien is asked by a former witness to find Miss America's assailant and murderer, he is given a Russian coin for safekeeping. Realizing that the coin and the murder are linked, Damien decides to find out more about the coin and is kidnapped during his investigation. 

It is now up to Millie to follow Damien's abductor to Florida before it is too late, and solve the mystery behind Miss America's murderer.

Review

Damien manages to find himself in even more trouble when he decides to investigate Miss America's murder, and it is up to Millie to come to his rescue in the second book of the Damien Dickens Mysteries. 

Millie's fans will be pleased to see that she plays a pivotal role in this book as she uses a combination of observation, common sense, and street smarts to find clues to Damien's disappearance. I really appreciated how Entis wrote Millie's character to be level-headed, intelligent, and personable.

Like its predecessor, The White Russian Caper has some nostalgic qualities in its setting and the characters are rendered beautifully. I was happy to see some of the characters from the first book, and I think that Entis did a wonderful job of evolving them (or devolving them in some cases). The investigations and the mysteries in the book are excellent; they allow readers to form their own conclusions, but do not spoil the surprise by revealing everything until the end. 

The White Russian Caper is an absorbing read with its gorgeous and nostalgic setting, and its irresistible characters. I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the Damien Dickens Mysteries
