Hotel No Tell

Daphne Uviller. Bantam, $15 trade paper (288p) ISBN 978-0-385-34270-4
In Uviller's animated, amusing sequel to Super in the City, Zephyr Zuckerman's boss assigns the spunky 30-year-old Special Investigations officer to a money laundering case at the Greenwich Village Hotel. Zephyr tries to work the concierge desk undercover, but she runs only into shenanigans and dead-end leads. As she struggles to find clues about the hotel's missing hundred grand, she must also deal with her own new and exciting single life after breaking up with her detective boyfriend. But when she uncovers that the hotel's problems aren't a simple money laundering scheme after all—and that she may be onto an egg donor scam—Zephyr races to make connections and solve a crime that has her questioning her maternal instincts. While the copious allusions to New York City establishments and pastimes can have the overwrought feel of a campy travel guide, this refreshing, smart caper novel will appeal to anyone who loves well-plotted mysteries and funny, off-the-wall characters. (May)
