    This book, released in 2008 by the Minotaur imprint of St Martin s book, might be an older mystery, but thankfully it was given to me by a friend when she cleaned house and I m very glad I got to read this With a prologue that made me think of Mary Higgins Clark, and the carefully built patches reminiscent of Lee Child s method that eventually are tied together with a common thread to make a fascinating quilt, this was not a carefree read, but one that reintroduced me to the wonder of taking This book, released in 2008 by the Minotaur imprint of St Martin s book, might be an older mystery, but thankfully it was given to me by a friend when she cleaned house and I m very glad I got to read this With a prologue that made me think of Mary Higgins Clark, and the carefully built patches reminiscent of Lee Child s method that eventually are tied together with a common thread to make a fascinating quilt, this was not a carefree read, but one that reintroduced me to the wonder of taking my time to read, savor, contemplate, and participate in the solving of the puzzle As an editor and author ...

    This was a start in the middle and work your way out sort of book, but it never lost me as the story unfolded There was a nice combination of history and mystery with just enough love thrown in And melancholy, too Parts of the plot were a bit contrived, but the elements were woven together completely enough that I m not sure if all of the story would have been told without them I did expect the police detectives to playof a role than they did, largely because I liked their characters a This was a start in the middle and work your way out sort of book, but it never lost me as the story unfolded There was a nice combination of history and mystery with just enough love thrown in And melancholy, too Parts of the plot were a bit contrived, but the elements were woven together completely enough that I m not sure if all of the story would have been told without them I did...

    The mystery itself is interesting but there were too many main characters I enjoy this in a book if each character is well developed and adds an interesting perspective But in this case it felt like we were switching around too much without significant investment in character development It...
