While not leaving a pleasant aftertaste upon completion (not due to the writing but to the tragedy of a great family felled), "The Last Meeting of the Dove Club: A Pioneer Family’s Tragedy" certainly gives a thrill in midst of reading the story itself. McNeal shines a light on the Fletcher family, their rise to wealth and the varying degrees of moral fortitude between their generation-to-generation progression. She does so in a thrilling narrative manner that sprinkles in historical aspects of how the Fletcher family has shaped the development of San Diego with the 'just-the-facts' attitude of a seasoned journalist.
There are moments of questionable syntax, but the storyline is juicy enough to keep the pages turning--self-made millionaire plays key role in the rise of San Diego, his children fall off and ultimately, ends in B-movie horror.
Murder in the desert could hardly get any more intriguing.
