Review by: Gerald Patrick on April 7, 2013 :
I found Rex Royale to be an interesting, gripping novel with just the right amount of attention to detail to show the author actually researched the area and enough ancillary action to lend realism and depth to the characters and story line to keep it plausible. While the author offers hints as to the who-done-it, the ending is a bit of a surprise and the epilog ties up all the loose ends while bringing to conclusion the questions raised about the characters.

I'd happily recommend this to any mystery lover as well as the romantic.
