It may seem like the Veronica Mars book series only just made its debut, but it seems like 2014 still has more in store for Veronica Mars fans.
In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.
The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove—or prove—the woman’s story.
The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying—but who? And why?
Promisingly enough, Rob Thomas has stated that Veronica and Logan fans can expect more of their favorite pairing in the second book, after barely any interaction between the two in the first.
The first Veronica Mars book, The Thousand Dollar Tan Line, was released March 25 and picked up where the Veronica Mars movie left off. You can check out the LeakyNews review of it here.
