Review by: Gordon Tatler on Oct. 29, 2012 : (no rating)
Read the free 20% version. Couldn't put it down. Bought the full version, and read the whole thing in one day. Great tale with two strands to keep track of part way through. A lot of people might be surprised at the finale, but I had my suspicions by chapter 15 - there are 27 chapters - and was certain by chapter 24. And I was right !

Absolutely riveting book. BUY IT !
