It's the 1940s and there's a lot happening...in this book.
The author does a brilliant job of weaving a complex tale that truly has you unable to stop turning the pages. I could easily envision the setting and see the characters as they went about trying to solve the kidnapping and murders. The dialogue was entertaining and believable. A twisty ride with a satisfying ending.
If you enjoy detective novels, you'll really enjoy this one.
