fFirst I was drawn into this book by the voice of the reader, It sounds SWestern. Then all the biblio addiction details hooked me. The mystery - decent enough with a surprise twict I was not expecting.
This was a very pleasant surprise. There is an interesting plot with strong character development. The mystery sharp with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing the end. I hope that all of the books in this series are made available soon.
