The Fourth Bear

The Fourth Bear (Nursery Crime, #2) The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Despite the pace that I read this book, I didn't enjoy it as well as the first book. I felt the plot was too complicated and took too long to develop. Some of the nursery rhyme references were too obscure to really catch the humor intended by the author.

Pub. Date: July 2007
Series: Nursery Crime Book 2

Synopsis: The Gingerbreadman—sadist, psychopath, cookie—is on the loose in Reading, but that's not who Detective Jack Spratt and Sergeant Mary Mary are after. Instead, they've been demoted to searching for missing journalist "Goldy" Hatchett. The last witnesses to see her alive were the reclusive Three Bears, and right away Spratt senses something furry—uh, funny—about their story, starting with the porridge.
