Dialog is incredible... The hunt is on as the twins, and their sister track their father's killers. Quick paced, with surprises along each trail they take... I found myself cheering for the twins... As they stumbled from one troubled sitution to another, I cringed and hoped for the best... Well... Hate to ruin a good story for someone...

ive read the first book and just recently finished Shadow of a Noose (Shadow. This was better than the first book, and im afraid to read the third because i don't think the story could get much better. 'Shadow was so good i read it in a day and a half.
