This novel will lead you down a twisted path and you will see many sides of all of the characters as the mystery unfolds. If you enjoy being involved in an complex mystery, this book is for you. At times, I was confused with the number of characters and keeping families members straight, since I am not familiar with the Shelley family lineage. Perhaps a family tree diagram would have helped me out.
I am also intrigued enough to read Lynn Shepherd's other Charles Maddox mystery "The Solitary House."
