It is a bit like Dickens Pickwick Papers where you are waiting for the other shoe to drop but it was a good read. – Lindon Ungerman
Its a real thrilling story and very well written. I look forward to reading more thrilling suspense mysteries of this series. – Sujata Raj
In the style of Christie, this is a cute, clever, clean mystery set in Midwest USA in the 1920’s. This is my first experience with a Benson book & I enjoyed it enough to start the first full length release in the series. – Sue
