    A Truly Chilling Novel

    A few critics rate this novel a masterpiece and, this time at least, the critics are right. MacDonald is an excellent writer and though he has a bizarre plot, he executes it brilliantly. Unlike most mystery stories today featuring Spenser, the Louisiana cop Dave whatshisname or others, MacDonald's plot is both suspensful and realistic. When other plots are manipulative or hokey, or just plain don't make sense, the characters and events here are real. MacDonalds leads the reader slowly and inexorably to the conclusion that packs a wallop. As usually, there is some beautiful writing but it doesn't get in the way of the story.

    One of the best stories told in a mystery/crime novel that I have read. I did not get a really suspensful feeling, but it was masterful storytelling and did have realistic characters.

    If you love a mystery, then you will love Ross MacDonald books

    Entertaining, well told mysteries. Ranks with Rex Stout books.
