I was very excited about reading this book after reading the first one 'The Legacy'. After reading it, I would have to say that the first book was better although I did enjoy this one, just not as much.
This is the last La Plante I read.
The single point being for the fact that I had to find out what happened in the end.
interesting but longwinded. when i finished it i was glad to be done.
