I was hooked by the first chapter! This mystery novel never drags and kept me interested from beginning to end. If you are looking for a novel that you can"t put down this one is it! I picked this book back up about a month after I had finished reading it and started it again. Enjoyed reading the second time as much as the first! This is the third novel I have read by this author. I really felt like I new every character personally and how they looked. I very much recommend this novel!!! - Mystery Enthusiast
