A Compelling novel by this writer, Well written an interesting back story well told, and a tense crime with a daifol suspect I must mention that towards the end of this book there is a scene in a cemetery I played Calon Lan on you tube whilst reading the passage Read the book and all will become clear.
A compelling and very well written novel.It starts with a murder, and we know who the murderer is, but as the book goes on we see deeper into the character.This is a tense, gripping murder crime novel not too gory that is well researched and therefore very believable I actually think this would translate well to the screen.This is the first in a new crime series, and if this is anything to go by then subsequent books should be just as good.
