Meet Isabel "Izzy" Spellman, private investigator. This twenty-eight-year-old may have a checkered past littered with romantic mistakes, excessive drinking, and creative vandalism; she may be addicted to "Get Smart" reruns and prefer entering homes through windows rather than doors -- but the upshot is she's good at her job as a licensed private investigator with her family's firm, Spellman Investigations. Invading people's privacy comes naturally to Izzy. In fact, it comes naturally to all the Spellmans. If only they could leave their work at the office. To be a Spellman is to snoop on a Spellman; tail a Spellman; dig up dirt on, blackmail, and wiretap a Spellman.
Chaos abounds in the Spellman family, and things aren’t any simpler for Spellman Investigations, the family business. But Isabel won’t stop hunting for the answers --- even when they threaten to shatter everything she holds dear.

This month, Books on Screen is truly an embarrassment of riches: two non-Taken Liam Neeson movies, including a years-in-the-making Scorsese pet project; Taraji P. Henson in the frames of my dreams; and Patrick Wilson in --- let’s face it --- pretty much anything. Let’s get down to the details before I get too distracted by what a good title “An Embarrassment of Richards” would be for a sexy calendar.
