A Good Read19 June 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
Was a fairly good read. Keep in mind this was one of his first books
Best British Mystery writer2 September 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Always surprises throughout these stories.
Nice change24 February 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Quirky plot and almost believable characters. Good grasp of US landscape but a bit too undeveloped there. A good enough read.

Definitely not one of Ranin's best. The story dragged1 May 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Definitely not one of Ranin's best. The story dragged. The plot was predictable. Give me a galloping "Inspector Rebus" anyday.
