The Hand on the Wall is the third and final book in the Truly Devious series.  I loved the first book, the second book was okay and this book was excellent as well.  It was a very satisfying ending to the series.  

Stevie is still Stevie, as usual she is focused on the case and nothing else.  Though Stevie had already figured out the Ellingham murders, there was still more to learn about that. There were also still three murders to figure out.  Finally, there was the mystery of David. I don’t want to say too much, but suffice it to say there was still a lot to figure out in this book.  

What I loved most about the series were the characters they are all so quirky and original.  This is a book that proves that eventually you will find your people. This is a great mystery series with fabulous characters and I highly recommend it.
