    Loved it. No single novel / short story is for all the varied tastes out there. And as it goes we all get good or bad reviews based on someone who can feel the story or not. Well, one is definitely for me. Thank you for sharing. From a police and investigative background myself I could think of at least four of my old colleagues when reading your work. Well done. Wishing you luck in your writing. Warm regards from Johannesburg, South Africa!
