3.0 out of 5 stars A little creepy May 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found these books to a little on the creepy side. Would have like it better if it were a straight mystery/detective story.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Okay April 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Too slow plot, too much description I've only read the first one. Maybe the other two will be better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average April 18, 2013

It is only an average author. It is not quite up to Patterson, Sandford, Clancy, etc. The price was right.

4.0 out of 5 stars kept you on the edge of your seat April 18, 2013

The story was written well and kept your attention with interesting names but ones you could keep the characters apart from one another.

2.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 prequel March 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The second book in this box set is a prequel and should be read first. Unfortunately I did not know this and the books flow is all wrong unless you read book 2 first.
Maybe because of this I didn't care for these books. Lots of unanswered questions and repetition of things you had already read. When it was all over I still wasn't sure what the answers were.

This box had a surprise ending that anyone who likes mysteries would be surprised at. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a little taste of the unnatural.

Good series, but books are out of order, read book two first, then read book one and finally book three. Don't bother with story four, it is a repackaging of the beginning of book three. Some of the characters are well developed and compelling. The stories are engaging.
