5-star Amazon reviews:
“A story of great suspense, family relationships gone wrong, blackmail, tragedy in war. FitzHugh has a very difficult homicide to solve while avoiding conflict with his superior, Superintendent Greig. A compelling read and difficult to put down until one has reached the solving of the mystery.”
“Likable characters, realistic conversations, and a twisting mystery make this an enjoyable read…”
