Lexile = 680
There are many different types of mysteries out there.... murder mysteries, police dramas, ghosts & hauntings.... and they do overlap. I would call Latitude Zero a "whodunit" mystery, although there is a murder and an amateur detective here. I've also seen this called a "travel mystery". I guess it is that as well. Tessa is an up and coming journalist who actually has her own local television show. She has a boyfriend who WAS a pro bike racer accused of doping and trying to return to his team. Tessa is a bit infatulated with Juan Carlos, a pro-cyclist from Ecuador. When he is killed in a local race, Tessa is determined to find the killer.... if indeed it was a murder. She employs her best Nancy Drew skills to track down clues and avoid the bad guys.
Good read; quick read. If you a fan of cycling, this is a must read.
