    2. Honestly, I wasn't a huge fan of this book. The first problems appeared in the first chapter. My biggest complaint was the constant switching between POVs in order to include foreshadowing or other clues about the mystery. It felt so forced when it would suddenly switch from George's POV in order to present some information. Page 12 starts off from George's POV as he encounters Father Finnegan. Suddenly, it changes as a sentance includes the following: "A girl . . . um . . . what kind of girl?" [...]

    3. The book has a lot of twists and turns. It keeps you reading to really find out 'who done it' - Two of the last three standing I expected. But the third albeit a slimy politician survived. Persinger, pulled the novel together nicely however he didn't neatly package the ending. It was happily ever after, but only sort of Made for a great vacation read.

    4. I won & received this book through . It was a great book! A bit anticlimactic at the end, but a great book none-the-less. Great storyline, easy to read--- not a lot of lull for you to wander and get bored. The ending was a bit abrupt though expected a bit more excitement in how it ended. I do look forward to what's next from John M. Persinger!

    6. great plot. characters need a little work - a little too conveniently related, but I couldn't put it down! great first book and looking forward to more.

    9. This is not exactly my favorite genre, but it was very well done. It took me a while to get through, but had a pretty good payoff in the end.
