I have never read anything by this author before. Yet, I liked this book. Duncan has a good keen sense about him. He was able to pick up on details. Also, I found that he was not easy rattled by anything. Plus, I was feeling the time period that this mystery took place in. In the beginning the book started out good. I was really getting into the groove of the story and the pacing. I was reading going along just fine and then the story started to lose some of its luster. I still enjoyed the book but I was not as invested in what was happening all the time. Yet the ending was a good one. I would consider trying this author's work out again. ( )
