It was a good setting, and the mystery was built up until the very end. The murders, yes, multiple ones, were unraveled nicely. Bond used Scripture well at the appropriate times. He was not preachy; it fit with the dialogue.
Typical Douglas Bond, tight, well written story, amusing, highly relatable characters, and plenty of unexpected twists and turns. I read almost the entire book in one sitting!
A little cheesy, but well written with good suspense.
