Todennäköisesti yksi huonoimmista murhamysteereistä, jonka olen koskaan lukenut. Toisen tähden kirja sai Rennen sinnepäin tehdystä käännöksestä.

My favorite novel concerning secondary characters in the Dragonlance settin (at least, from what I read they have only been secondary). Roberts did an excellent job with this story!
