Relationships were a key component of this mystery, and the interactions of all the characters, past and present, was fascinating. All in all, a very interesting and entertaining novel." — Amazon reviewer"Enjoyed choice of murder location, getting harder to find somewhere different. Liked Riley, was rather surprised she didn't have an antagonistic relationship with police...but very glad. It's a welcome change, and not to have her treated like a brainless person." — Amazon reviewer
