I read this for two reasons: I am an admirer of one of the author's other series, and I just recently visited Taleisin West and was interested in the setting and Frank Lloyd Wright angle.

But, sadly, as others have said, this is not a very good book. One dimensional characters and wooden writing.

I do recommend the Nicholas Bracewell series under the name Edward Marston.
I found this book to be poorly written with stiff dialogue and one dimensional characters. A few scant facts about Frank Lloyd Wright are included but other wise there is little to learn about architecture in what is billed as an "architectural mystery. Not recommended.
