***THIS BOOK WAS RECEIVED FROM THE PUBLISHER***

Books like this one are what give independent writers a bad name. Furthermore, books like this should give independent authors pause before becoming contractually tied to a publisher.

This book was entertaining from start to finish. It was a quick read. I thought it was interesting how Mr. Dagley incorporated some history and culture into this murder mystery. I am looking forward to to the next Cale Dixon Mystery.

This murder mystery is absolutely fascinating. My knowledge of Myanmar aka Burma was limited to one of Anthony Borodin's television shows. Whether it is Myanmar or Burma really depends on Who you talk to. The People call themselves Burmese, This book is set in the 1990sish.
Cale Dixon is chosen to solve a murder that took place in an elaborate South Asian art museum. At the murder scene, some elaborate Burmese stones were found in a bizarre manner. Everything about the case screams professional a
