Can Lillian catch the murderer or is she about to become a victim? The Mah Jonng Murders by Linda G Pirtle is an intriguing story, written in such a way that I just had to keep on reading it. It is one of those stories that dictates how you read it, with a real need to know what is going to happen next. Every time I decided to put the book down and leave it, something else would happen that meant I couldn’t! This an excellent book, one of the best murder mystery stories I have read for a while. Both the story and characters are believable and the characters incredibly likeable. They are all very well developed and the way they are written allows you to get to know them throughout the story. This is a good thing because the story ended with lots of questions that could well be answered in the next book. Great read, definitely looking forward to the next one!
