#4 in the Sylvia Strange series.

Glad I only paid .49 for this book. I can't quite put my finger on it but I just did not care for this book. I had a really hard time focusing. My mind kept wandering so this book just could not hold my attention.

Dante's Inferno, despite a fairly intricate plot, fails to deliver much suspense or mystery. Most of the developments upon which the story twists and turn were formulaic and predictable.
