I could not decide how many stars for this book. It is a well written, and researched book . But something is missing, and I found it dull in some parts. perhaps the writer will improve next time, I have a feeling that this is going to be a series. The biggest problem, was too many characters, At the end of this book, one needed a scorecard to list the names. A library book, not a bought book.Was this review helpful?

Eleanor Kuhns certainly knows how to write and research a story, with both the setting and the time period integral to the tale. Will Rees is a flawed hero readers can enjoy, and he has enough sense of purpose to get the job done when obstacles begin to build around him.Was this review helpful?

The details and description proved plentiful throughout the novel, and the characters were by no means one-dimensional, but something was missing throughout most of the first half of this novel. It might have to do with the slow start, and the details that sometimes took the reader a bit too far away from the story. The second half moved a little quicker, and the ending provided a good summary, but it felt rushed.
While not a complete surprise at the end, this book had a decent plot and a few suspects to keep the reader’s interest. It was a unique read focused on a unique time period, but as the winner of the First Crime Novel Competition the bar should have been set a little higher.
I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
