As an adult who's read Holmes, and as a child who read every single Nancy Drew book she could get her hands on, along with the Hardy Boys and Boxcar children...I have to say, Ingrid is my favorite gumshoe of all...Echo Falls is filled to the brim with shady characters, and Ingrid's prepared to take them all down...Into the Dark encompasses a wide range of real-life situations in addition to the murder she must solve. The family problems are deep, and Abrahams does a good job of mirroring reality (he really takes no shortcuts). Ingrid isn't perfect, but she marches her way through her problems with a dignity and shrewdness...
