    Outstanding! An excellent read!

    George shows her versatility and her mastery of technique here. Her use of both first and third person adds much to the suspense and keeps the reader interested as the story unfolds. Complex characters reveal their secrets as their lives converge in an exciting conclusion. Compelling, sad, ironic, and well-written.

    THE BEST

    I had to write this although I read this book a few years ago. I disagree with the other review in that the diary format was very readable and many scenes I still remember vividly

    A Fantastic Finale

    I consider this one the best in the Lynley-Havers mysteries. It's like reading two different stories, with the connection being made in the dramatic finale. Although the mother-daughter love-hate relation is a bit extreme ... the characters are very well developed and I could sympathize with both of them

    An intricate, tangle of peoples lives; lifelike and easy to read

    An intricate, tangle of peoples lives; lifelike and easy to read. What a great mystery this was. I was apprehensive because of some of the reviews I read. However, Ms. George makes it sooooo interesting I couldn't put it down!

    one of her best.

    George goes beyond her usual excellence in this one. Parallel stories are handled with dexterity and aplomb. Yet she never losses or dilutes the theme.
