Reviews

oceanjasper

- Intriguing story

A thoroughly entertaining story combining whodunit, courtroom drama and family rivalry. Full of surprises, with all the details eventually coming together in a satisfying ending. The sole reader does a very good job.

- A good tale!

Good mystery, great characters, not the ending I expected... but I was close ;-)

Cerise

- A good tale, very well read

An excellent mystery, great characters, well read. I thought I had it figured out... what a neat twist on my expectation. I didn't see it coming (though one important detail is not mentioned till near the end). Great for all that. I won't give it away... tempting though....
