The book grabbed me from the start.
Great characters I can associate with.
A plot that is entertaining without pandering.
I would recommend Another Mans Treasure to anyone who likes good a book.

The story was good. The struggle this man faced was very real in
a lot of cases.
There was mystery, romance, personal dilemmas, and some action.
Too much time was spent on the intimate thoughts which, I feel
distracted from the story. There was also a brief somewhat sexually
explicit scene. Otherwise, it was a fairly well-written story.

This was an engaging read. The author caught my interest from the beginning with the character of Ted McCormick. We learn pretty early on that Ted has chosen his modest profession as an escape from some corporate falling out in his past. There is obvious tension in his marriage and his work puts him in some pretty interesting situations.
There are several very intriguing characters in this novel. Mr. Smith, the aging and overbearing man who hires Ted to clean out his father's home is certainly distinct and seemingly paranoid. Henry, a older gentleman with a quirky disposition is a refreshing character, someone you'd like to encounter in your own life.
The plot of this novel is full of drama, and I personally was waiting to see what would happen between Ted, Janet and Mary. I struggled throughout with what I wanted to happen, while I felt Mary was possibly too hard on her husband, I felt that Ted should have more respect for his wife, and Janet was too smart to be playing with fire.
I would have never guessed that Mr. O'Connor could write a resolution that satisfied me without being cheesy or too contrived. I really enjoyed this book. I definitely recommend it for anyone who enjoys a little mystery with plenty of twists and turns.
This was Mr. O'Connor's first novel and I hope there will be more to come.
