This is the third Allan Folsum book that I have read. I really enjoyed the Day after Tomorrow (4.5 stars) and liked Day of Confession (4 stars). As I was reading this book, I wondered what had happened - was this written by the same author? I was thinking that this was a 2 star book. Thankfully, the last third picked up sufficiently to raise my rating to 3 stars overall.
I found this book to be too slow with less than stellar characters. It is an average mystery/intrigue novel.
