Madness: A No Sin Mystery
Be careful who you love. In this sequel to Chinese Puzzle the mystery begins with a man disappearing from an elaborately sealed shipboard cabin and moves on to the fog-shrouded streets of prohibition era San Francisco where guarded sanctuaries provide no protection from a killer whose cunning and cruelty is not restrained by the shackles of sanity.

Assessment:

Raymond's offbeat mystery, set in 1928, about a man's disappearance from a sealed ship cabin and a murderer in San Fransisco during Prohibition is a slow starter -- the plot simply takes too long to develop and hook readers. However, the book features a zany and engaging gallery of characters, an interesting premise, and sustained suspense. In the end, the book's idiosyncratic action works to outweigh the too-long development.
