    Great period descriptions and characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Its a long story that builds but characters keep the story going.

    Since he's been in many period movies his narration fits easily.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Great Cast of detectives drive a period horror and suspense story.
