  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Karen Pullen | 2/20/2014

    " Brilliant. I almost put the book down in the first scene which is horrific, but once past it, I loved this book. Atkinson is a superb writer, one of the very best. Language, characters, plots - this book has them all, with multiple story lines, coincidences, lots of original characters - all under perfect control. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Verena | 1/30/2014

    " Excellent. What a terrific writer. The only thing I ding her for is too many coincidences. Now I am going back and reading the first two books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Joyce | 1/29/2014

    " This goes in a lot of different ways that are interesting and unexpected. I enjoyed it, although I have to agree that you begin to wonder when there will be good news as this mystery novel is filled with a lot of sorrow and bloodshed. While Jackson Brodie is fun to visit with, I would love to see Reggie Chase again. What pluck! "
