I tried to make several attempts to draw a conclusion to “ who done it” but failed. I almost didn’t download this story because there were so few reviews, but the one review that cinched it was the comment about cuss words. Silly as it sounds, I appreciate a little profanity, it is truer to life. By the way, there is very little bad language and who doesn’t say” Jesus or oh God” now and then .. Don’t let that throw you off a good read!
A great story, plenty of details and past paced too! Loved it
I was looking something different that would keep me interested and by George I definitely found it!! This was fabulously written. The twists and turns that hooked you from the first paragraph. I highly recommend this book!! VERY UNPUTDOWNABLE!!!
