Great mystery. A real find. I want to read everything else this author has written!

I didn't enjoy this quite as much as the first in the series, but will definitely continue reading the series. I do continue to enjoy the time setting for the series. I thought there were some major coincidences in the resolution toward the end, and saw some things coming almost from the beginning. This would probably be a C+ from me.

A very nice, though somewhat outdated, mystery. Some of the outdating is intentional: the book was published in the 80's but takes place in 1968; some of it the nature of fast-changing technology, etc.

I've read one or two others by this author and have found them quite good, with appealing characters and appropriately twisty plots.
