Could this old case be the key to what really happened all those years ago?
To be honest, I did not enjoy this novel. Unfortunately the story did not hold my interest. The story seemed similar to one of those crime shows you might watch on television. While the author has written much about the main character Anna Travis there was not much that made her favorable. The story is set in London England.
A crime procedural does not interest me as a reader. You might enjoy this author if you like works of fiction such as Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cornwall, or Mary Higgins Clark. Then this novel is for you! By Josephine Mattia
