From Goodreads:
Dr. Mark Sloan is assigned to LAPD's "unsolved homicide" files. As he reopens one case on the murder of a woman whose killer currently sits on Death Row, Sloan learns that the wrong man was charged. And that the real killer is still at large...

Dick Van Dyke is the best. Obviously.

I loved the mystery and humor in the TV show Diagnosis Murder, and I missed it. So I looked into getting my hands on the book series. It was not at my library and all of the books were out of print. Eeps! So I had a choice: buy used copies via the internet or interlibrary loan them.

Because I am such a big fan, I decided to buy them.

And I’m having a blast.

The mysteries (there were two) were interesting and Mark Sloan seemed true to his TV character. In my opinion, however, Jack and Amanda and the descriptions of their thoughts, feelings and actions felt cheesy and not necessarily true to the show. That might have been because I was too young to notice how they interacted and didn’t remember Jack well enough.

Over all, I had so much fun reading it that I immediately ordered the second one. I can’t wait to read it!
