I have enjoyed Claudia Hall Christian's work for several years now and this work is no exception. The Seth and Ava mysteries are great examples of how to keep a reader interested. I could not put this book down. Our hero does finally find out who the killer is, but only after a few missteps which make him all the more human. I cannot wait for the next installment. Great Job...Again!!
