Reviews

Enjoyable intrigue


(4 stars)

An older gentleman is murdered in a village where many inhabitants seem to have guilty secrets and reasons to be out on the moor near midnight, near the scene of the crime. Surprise revelations build until the penultimate chapter in this entertaining mystery.

Great story


(5 stars)

I love Fletchers books. His stories are complex in some ways, but the stories are easy to follow and simply told.

Overall Good Story w/ Great Narration


(4 stars)

I enjoy most of the books from this author. This was an entertaining listen while did chores. I was a bit confused by the ending because it explained part of the mystery but not necessarily the actual murder. I don’t know if anyone else was confused. Overall though, worth the listen to.

Interesting Story - Read Well
