This isn't a good book; This is a GREAT book! (B. W. Amazon Reviewer) This is one of those books that I will reread for the enjoyment, and I reread very few books because there are so many of them and so little time. (B.A. Amazon Reviewer) The greatest endorsement I can give the vel is that the mystery compelled me to finish the last half of the book in a single evening. I just HAD to kw how things would be resolved. (M. R.
