I liked the historical setting in this book which I found very interesting. There were lots of little twists and turns in the story. It is the type of book that requires you to fit together the different pieces of the story which makes for an engaging read.

A fantastic book. I have read the other two by Lloyd Shepherd and they were equally as good. His command of the English language is phenomenal, as is his imagination. I just had to keep reading!!

A fantastic mix of the supernatural and history. A mystery that kept you guessing to the end. Would definitely recommend.
