The Fourth Bear
The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde is the second book in his Nursery Crime series. It takes up where the first book left off, with Detective Jack Spratt on the case of Goldilocks, a news reporter for a local TV station. She has suddenly disappeared, and Jack suspects foul play, especially after meeting with the three bears in the woods. More difficulties are getting in his way as he has been suspended from duty, his wife is angry at him, and he is suspected of going insane. He must have his partner, Mary, work on the case while he tries to stay out of sight of his partner, Briggs. Read this book if you liked the first one, if you enjoy nursery rhymes, or if you like to laugh at books. I give this book an 8 out of 10.
