To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Read most of Priscilla Masters books now... and they never fail to thrill me... Always read them within a couple of days, just have to make time to read a few more pages... certainly an author with the CAN'T PUT THE BOOK DOWN secret..
It is interesting to compare a book like this to the Stuart MacBride, DS Logan McRae series which I am also reading right now. The MacBride books have complex plots and lots of both professional and personal conflict. This book and the previous one have relatively simple plots and in this book no professional conflict of any significance. While there are some personal issues here, there isn't any contact between the people involved so there is no change in the relationships. It's a reasonably good book, but on a much lower level of sophistication than many other mysteries.
