Most Helpful Customer Reviews
When I first started reading this book I wasn’t sure I wanted to get involved in another detective novel.It didn’t take long before that changed and I didn’t want to lay the book down. If you have anything important you need to do, don’t start reading this. When you do start reading you certainly won’t want to put the book down for something as mundane as meals or sleep. Maybe you can just line up some snacks in front of you before you pick up this book. I’m such a girl. I have to admit that I needed a few tissues before the book ended. I didn’t really want Beyond the Truth to end. Hopefully, Mr. Coffin has many more Detective Byron mysteries in the pipeline. I certainly hope one of them will emerge soon. ***Book provided without charge by PICT.*** Submitted by sunny island breezes.
I have read all three of the John Byron novels, and I sincerely hope many more follow. Coffin’s plot twists are realistic, and the chapters just continue to flow.
