Excellent
Well developed plot and characters. 1902 crime forensics, legal elements and a bit of good page-turning...

Pretty fun read. Came away thinking it was about the plot and not so much about character development - I like that and I took a thankful notice of how 'going too far' with details didn't happen. I'll give it 3 1/2

Pretty good - a bit too much colorful dialog but, it's easy to skip a page or two and not miss a thing.

It was a fun read with a surprising end.

What a hoot - had me turning pages and couldn't stop until I finished!

I was tricked and didn't see the twist coming - had to re-read it!

A real fun read!

Claire Duffy - Snarky Protagonists, Dark Facts Blended With Fiction, and Suspenseful Crime-solving
FEATURED AUTHOR - Claire Duffy was a screenwriter for over a decade until she caught herself cycling past a production company and giving it the finger. She decided she didn't like the person the film industry was turning her into. Duffy quit, took a temporary job at a daycare in Stockholm, and wrote her first novel while her class of one-year-olds took their afternoon nap. Through blogging that story in daily chapters, she discovered indie publishing and never looked back.
