Review by whoizme8
This book by Cumming is not your usual quick read mystery. It takes time to read this book--no skipping from first sentence of one paragraph to the first sentence of the next paragraph. There are several main characters and they have to be sketched out for us to understand and know. The plot is twisted enough to keep you reading until the end--and what an end.J.
