on the loose, breaking into art galleries and private homes to

Holmes mystery series.
Leonard Goldberg, a USA Today
author, has done a clever job with The

, his fourth in the series, from

Holmes continues to fascinate him.
Listeners may want to try to solve the mystery of the
disappearing co-host, and hear about our next show.
