The characters and circumstances they find themselves in are believable and the pace of the narration makes the storyline easy to follow.
Absolutely! I enjoy mysteries and like to try to figure out how the story will end. This one did not disappoint.
The pace of the narration and the distinct and believable portrayal of the characters made it very easy to pick up the "book" at anytime, without having to replay where I left off.
The character of Carlyle evoked the most emotion from me. His otherworldly relationship with "Scotch" brought an element of the possibility of another realm in an otherwise very realistic storyline. The combination worked well in the book.
Perhaps author Sheehan will bring Carlyle back in another novel, this time with a more prominent role.
