Reviews

Review by: Claudio Porstmann on April 13, 2012 :
Good literature, well written and an entertaining read. As soon as I read the first page I was hooked and had to continue.
A Man on the Misty Trail is an interesting tale, spun from a singular situation and very well developed. The subtle mood shifts, the scenery and description, they all add up to a believable story. Be sure not to pass this up.
