Overall the group enjoyed this book. They felt it kept you in suspense and that the mystery was good. There were a lot of characters to keep track of and, consequently, to be suspicious of – making the mystery more complex to solve.
This part of a three book series, but really they work as stand alone books. They are all fairly tangentially connected by the consulting agency that the hero owns, according to those that have read ahead to other books in the series. Those who haven’t read ahead yet, plan to read more in the series.
