Well plotted

It’s the second book by Douglas Clark that I have read and I found it as enjoyable as the first. It’s subtly plotted and easy to read. The ending is not particularly surprising but enough ambiguity is left to leave the reader unsure until close to the end.

Very predictable.

May be decent read for people just beginning to pick up reading.
Else, there are much better mystery novels out there.

reread this after a few years. Douglas Clark specialized in mysteries having to do with medical conditions--in this one, giving someone a dinner designed to interact with their M.A.O.I. so as to kill them. very smooth....
