Another good book!

The story line was different and as always, exciting and interesting. Many different and always quickly moving things happening to lots of different people. Never a dull moment.

Enjoyable book

Good book if you like multiple plots. I tend to like anything The Johnstones publish. Been enjoying these books since before William passed on.
